Celebration for mothers
More than 150 local mothers, grandmothers and aunties, together with their children, enjoyed an early Mother’s Day celebration in Kwinana last Tuesday.
The free event, organised by Connecting Community For Kids, was open to all mothers, and mother figures, in the local community for a memorable morning of complimentary massages, scrumptious food, learning new crafts and bonding with other mothers from the community.
The event started with a welcome to country and remembrance for people who were unable to be with loved ones this Mother’s Day.
The mayors of the cities of Kwinana and Cockburn attended, and spent time talking to local mums.
“We organised this event to develop a sense of community, as well as spoil the local mums a little,” Connecting Community for Kids partnership director Jane Miller said.
“Our aim was to put on a heartwarming event that encouraged families to spend well-deserved time together to relax, reconnect and enjoy a beautiful morning.”
