On Saturday, 29 March 2014, I will be hosting a special ceremony at Ashfield Town Hall. This ceremony will be to officially welcome babies from the local area into our community.
Every baby who attends will receive a special certificate of welcome, and a gift bag which will also contain useful information about health and community services available to parents, carers and babies.
The “Welcoming the Babies” ceremony is designed to celebrate new births in our community and also to say “Thank you” to parents and guardians for the important job they do.
Of course, older children in participating families are more than welcome to attend, too.
Last year’s inaugural Marrickville Children’s Festival was a wonderful occasion to welcome new babies into our community and I look forward to this year’s event.
If you are interested in coming along or if you have any questions, please contact my office on 9564 3588, or email [email protected]
Places will be limited to 50 babies so be sure to respond soon to confirm your attendance.
