Dear Friends and Owners of Unley,

I hope you enjoy the summer newsletter below. I couldn't fit in the news of the 150 years Picnic.

Coming out of Covid in style

Leaving Covid 19 behind will be tough on many. We can all be somewhat affected by the prisoner effect. Some will feel at risk and may stay at home or avoid human contact. We need to rebuild community and at the same time care for those who will succumb to the new versions of the flu or covid19.

The final 150th Unley Community picnic is well timed and totally open to every citizen of Unley. Let us all celebrate together, come together and enjoy public life in Unley again.

We have had limited events, cancelled events and this is a real curtain raiser as we come out of Covid lockdowns. We can be thankful for the successful vaccines and the high level of uptake that makes this event possible.

The event will be held on Sunday 5th December at the Soldiers Memorial Gardens from 11 am to 3 pm and will feature an array of amazing live music including the “The Three Little Sisters” Andrews Sisters Tribute band.

There will be food available for purchase (a local service club will provide a BBQ, plus we will have toffee apples, popcorn, fairy floss, and the Maison de France will have a French food offering on the day plus more) and attendees will also be able to bring their own picnic to share. 

Vintage games, pony rides, face painting, an Unley Museum pop-up exhibition, and a walking tour will keep everyone entertained on the day.

Ros and I will be there from 11.00am and I look forward to meeting you all in person, sharing, relaxing and celebrating our coming together again.
