How Comfy Were Ya Wellies

Media Releases

Bindoon’s Edmonds Reserve was the place to be on Sunday 22 May for the Shire’s third Wear Ya Wellies family fun day.  Our annual ‘we don’t care if it rains’ welcome-to-winter event.   The weather gods worked their magic and produced the most spectacular day for the event with clear skies and although slightly cold to start with, most people soon warmed up with the fantastic array of entertainment and yummy food on hand.

Event goers enjoyed the educational antics of Tyrannosaurus Park under the big top with many people walking away from the three 40 min shows in fits of laughter and encouraging those who hadn’t seen the show yet to make sure that they did. 

Roxanne’s Dance Workshop, the Bindoon Primary School Choir and Izzy the Dinosaur kept people entertained with their performances on the green, along with train rides by the Gingin Chittering Lions Club and Perth Party animals. 

Without a doubt the biggest and best spectacle of the day was the muddy maze where the kids and the kids at heart enjoyed themselves splashing around in the mud.  Much to the amazement of many visitors to our area was the emerging mud monsters with broad smiles on their faces who then received a much needed wash down before being allowed into their parents cars at the end of the day.  

Thanks go to all the volunteers on the day.  Particularly we would like to acknowledge the work of the Youth Krew.  This group of young people are tireless in their efforts to support the Shire at community events.  They provided much needed helping hands and lots of youthful enthusiasm for this event and we are eternally grateful to them all.  As a community we are very blessed to have such an exceptional group of youth leaders who get in and encourage all kids to have a go. 

Also thanks go to the Wannamal Community Centre and the Bindoon Primary School P&C volunteers who provided winter warming treats to attendees on the day and the ladies from the CWA Koorunga Branch whose colourful presence and friendly smiles made for an eventful Welly Toss competition. They assure us that they are already planning a bigger and better competition for next years event.  

To the following sponsors of the event: Ace Electrical, Western Hay, Lotteries Commission, Road Safety Commission and the School Drug Education and Road Aware Smart Steps Program, thank you  for helping to make this family fun day possible.
