Wear Ya Wellies, the Shire of Chittering’s annual free “welcome to winter”, family fun day was an absolutely amazing success.  Around 4,500 people packed Edmonds Place Reserve (and Bindoon!) for a day of messy, muddy madness!

A picture is worth a thousand words, so we are simply sharing some of the photos and comments that were posted to the Wear Ya Wellies Facebook page.

Chittering Wear Ya Wellies

  • Pam “We had a ball… a wonderful event
  • Sara Jade “So much fun today!
  • Jenine “Oh wow, that is A LOT of mud
  • Paige “So much fun! Thanks for a great day!
  • Lea “Beautiful day for it! Well worth the drive
  • Deb “Pure joy and laughter all around me… bliss
  • Kirsty “Full car load up from south of the river!!
  • Monique “Great family day out
  • Amy “We had a fabulous, muddy day!!
  • Marika “Some mud jumping fun.  Awesome day

Thanks go to Lotterywest and the Road Safety Commission for their financial support.  Without this funding we would not be able to supply the required infrastructure for an event such as this.

We wholeheartedly appreciate the voluntary efforts on the day of local organisations including Ace Electrical (Jack), Last Drop Water Carriers (James), Muchea Plumbing & Gas (Peter), Bindoon Volunteer Bush Fire Brigade (Bushy and his mates), Shire of Chittering staff (many and varied!) and all involved with the Bindoon Farmers Market.  Without them free community events simply would not take place.

And last, but definitely not least, a big shout out to Alison (the Event Organiser, our Economic & Community Development Support Officer), Lisa (our Community & Club Development Officer) and her family (Mark, Jayne, Emily and Brooke) and the Chittering Youth Krew… Tasma, Gemma, Aiden, Daniel, Finn, Brandon, MJ, Jack and Regan.
