Newcastle Family Support Centre Opens

We had a great day on Tuesday building quite a bit more than anyone imagined – and mostly done all by the kids themselves!! With the initial idea of an Earthbag sandpit in the corner of this garden, to be used by children aged 1-5 at the Newcastle Family Support Services Centre in Waratah, we started filling our bags. With 15 tonnes of sand to shift in just one day many were quite worried it just couldn’t be moved in time for the grand opening of the Family Support Centre yesterday. But moved it was, with the kids’ indefatigable efforts they showed us anything is possible! Congratulations everybody, a wonderful day and great effort – and already such a well loved and well used sandpit as was shown yesterday when the Centre officially opened. We will be having the plastering day next Wednesday, 18th July, so come along and get to know this great community centre while having some fun decorating our new wall!
