Trivia night a huge success

05 May 2016

Trivia night a huge success Image

In what was an overwhelming success, 61 local residents packed out the Boyd Community Hub on Wednesday, April 6 for the inaugural Southbank Community Trivia Night.

Host by community animator Nadine Ford and the Boyd team, the first event of its kind in Southbank saw several tables of local residents battle it out for a range of prizes donated by local businesses.

Its success has prompted community stakeholders to initiate more local events in the future and the Southbank Residents Association is already forming a working group to organise the next trivia night.

Community animator Nadine Ford said the evening was a strong reflection that the Southbank community was calling out for more events of its kind.

“This event was a stark reminder to myself that this community is really wanting these types of events, opportunities to meet local residents, connect in a fun way and feel part of the Southbank community,” she said.

“I was truly humbled to be a part of it and it really brings home the purpose of a community animator in these types of venues particularly in a community such as Southbank. We are there to facilitate these types of opportunities.” 

The next Southbank Trivia Night will be held on Wednesday, October 5.

In the meantime, Boyd, together with Southbank Rotary, will host a community barbecue on Thursday, May 19 from 5pm to 7pm.
