The Naragebup Fes­ti­val will cel­e­brate this week­end the work be­ing un­der­taken at the Rock­ing­ham Re­gional En­vi­ron­ment Cen­tre .

Res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to at­tend to see the ben­e­fits of the com­mu­nity as­set.

The open day event was rein­vig­o­rated last year af­ter not be­ing held for sev­eral years.

The new look event aims to bring peo­ple to the cen­tre to see what is avail­able at the fa­cil­ity.

Naragebup chair­woman Bar­bara Sciesin­ski said a range of dis­plays and ac­tiv­i­ties would be hap­pen­ing on the day.

These in­cluded stalls sell­ing wares such as craft pieces and na­tive plants. There will also be food trucks and en­ter­tain­ment such as belly danc­ing.

En­try is by do­na­tion, with any money raised set to go back into the cen­tre and its up­keep.

“Any­one who comes along will be sup­port­ing us and they will also get to learn a bit about what we do,” she said.

“We’ve been work­ing on sev­eral projects since last year’s open day and can now show off things that weren’t here last year like the macro in­ver­te­brate dip­ping pond.”

The cen­tre is also putting the call-out for vol­un­teers to help around the cen­tre, with any­one in­ter­ested asked to call 9591 3077.

The Naragebup Fes­ti­val is on this Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27, from 10am-3pm.
