We love community events. We always meet so many lovely people. The crew at Inner West Council and the Summer Hill Community Centre we so welcoming. Thanks to all involved. We made Mandalas A big shout out to the Bill Crews Foundation for a cracking BBQ. The team at 3 Bridges were keen to get making. And a special mention to all the lovely families we met on such a beautiful day.
