Buoyed by community response

16 Apr 2013

Buoyed by community response Image

The first ever Buoyed @ Boyd community event was held last month at, you guessed it, Boyd Community Hub.

The centre opened its doors to the public, displaying many of its activities available to locals.

The evening included poetry readings, live music, face-painting, children’s reading (by a pirate no less) and a taco truck.

Boyd community animator, Natalie Warren, said the event was a great success and the response from locals had been extremely positive.

“All of my City of Melbourne colleagues were really enthusiastic about the turn out, level of engagement and response to the evening. There were lots of familiar faces, but also lots of newcomers too,” Ms Warren said.

“In addition to the City of Melbourne service providers, such as the Southbank Library and Maternal and Child Health, Buoyed @ Boyd was a fantastic opportunity to showcase groups that now are regulars such as yoga, tai chi and the Boyd craft group.”

The next Buoyed @ Boyd event is on Thursday, May 2 at 5pm.
