As an elected member of the City of Unley and a Warden at St Augustine’s Anglican Church I am pleased to see this event take place and trust everyone will take the opportunity to come along and help us celebrate a great initiative to open up the space between St Augustine’s and the council to the community.
The following is a press release from council.
St Augustine’s Church, in conjunction with the Unley City Council, are holding a Multicultural Fair and Grand Opening of the new Village Green Plaza on Saturday 2 November.
The fair starts at 9am with a recital by a lone piper, followed by performances and food stalls from numerous multi-cultural and charitable organisations.
Mayor of Unley, Lachlan Clyne, will officially open the Village Green Plaza at 11am. St Augustine’s and The City of Unley have been working together to re-develop the Plaza into an attractive and functioning space.
Food stalls will be held showcasing the traditional foods of the local Chinese, Hungarian and Indian communities. The will also be a colourful performance of rational dance by the Armenian Society.
Operations Flinders will be hosting a Quandong (Wild Peach) Pie Stall and an abseiling wall on the bell tower for those with some energy to wear off.
An exciting array of stalls will offer crafts, cakes, coffee, pastries and books to try, taste and buy.
Charities, organisations and cultural groups who participate will retain all proceeds. Community groups who wish to run their own stall can still get involved. Interested stall holders can contact Brenton on 0418 883 550.
A multi-cultural, non-denominational church service will also be held the next day on Sunday 3 November at 5pm with a taste of different cuisines to follow.
