Encircle to host Community Fun Day
Words by Ashleigh Howarth

Cultural performances, live music, inflatable sports, jumping castles, a petting zoo and face painting are just a few of the exciting activities families can enjoy at the upcoming Community Fun Day at Encircle Redcliffe Neighbourhood Centre.

All the fun will be held from 10am-2pm on Saturday, March 25 at Encircle Community Services Redcliffe Neighbourhood Centre, located at 1 Lamington Drive, Redcliffe.

The theme for this year’s Community Fun Day is ‘Everybody Belongs’, with the event highlighting the goals of Encircle to strengthen connections with local people and networks, while also delivering projects that foster belonging and inclusion in the Moreton Bay Region.

The event will coincide with Harmony Week, which is held from Monday, March 20 to Sunday, March 26.

Encircle CEO Chris Staines said he is pleased to host this free Community Fun Day and hopes families and individuals will come along and join in the celebrations.

“We identified the Redcliffe region is wanting to see more community events that reduce social isolation and loneliness,” Chris said.

“It’s important for us to provide free events that foster a sense of belonging without people worrying about the price of food, drink and activities, especially with the increase in the cost of living.

“There will be lots of free fun for everyone and Encircle staff will also be on hand to connect people with local programs and support services that they may not realise are available.”

Free tickets are available via the Encircle website, Facebook page and Moreton Bay Regional Council website.

Encircle have hosted two Community Fun Days in the past which attracted big crowds.

The first event in 2021, which was also a dual celebration for the opening of Encircle Kallangur, attracted more than 1100 attendees.

The second event, which was held in 2022, had more than 750 people attend as well as a variety of stall holders. 

Can you help?

Encircle is calling out for more volunteers to help with running the Community Fun Day.

Roles include food handling, craft activities, stall holders, a photograher, vidoegrapher and more.

They are also hoping some local businesses will come on board and help sponsor the event.
