Big crowds at Twilight Fair and Hilton Harvest leads on community inclusion

Once again the Twilight Fair was a huge success with hundreds of people gathering for another great evening of entertainment, activities and community connections. Some of the musicians were really outstanding. But as always the greatest credit and thanks must go to all the Hilton Harvest volunteers who put in such a huge effort to make the event a success. What an asset to our community this project has become.

Meanwhile Helen Whitkin and Janet Parker have worked hard to secure a $50,000 Disability Services Commission grant. They have worked with the DSC, Men's Shed, Growing Towards Wellness, Sensorium Theatre and DADAA (Disability in the Arts, Disadvantage in the Arts) to put together a project that will help make the gardens more accessible to and inclusive of people with disabilities.

Initiatives may include wheel chair accessible garden beds, sensory gardens and activities for people with disabilities. After securing City of Fremantle sponsorship of the grant application we will find out in June if they've been successful. Congratulations on a great initiative.
