On Saturday the doors of Balmain’s Town Hall were thrown open to greet families from the Inner West for Welcoming the Babies, an event I have now hosted four times, to help celebrate the arrival of the newest citizens in Grayndler.
This is the first time Welcoming the Babies has been held within the new boundaries of my electorate on the Balmain peninsula.
The event was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate our growing local community and recognise the hard work of parents and guardians. The ongoing baby boom in Balmain and neighbouring suburbs is something to celebrate
Welcoming the Babies is also a great way to find out about local community services and I thank the many local businesses and organisations who donated gifts and provided information for the packs that were presented to families.
I look forward to hosting the event again in the near future.
