Langwarrin folks just Love Where They Live
The Stories of Langwarrin community project will be hitting the road on Sunday 1 December, offering residents the chance to take part in a series of free community bus tours and a vibrant community expo at the Langwarrin Scout Hall.
This event has been organised by the Love Where You Live working group for Langwarrin, made up of local people who are keen to celebrate and share all that is great about their suburb.
The public is invited to join one of six free tours, led by long-time locals. The buses depart every 30 minutes from the Langwarrin Scout Hall and showcase some of Langwarrin’s most impressive landmarks, including McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery, the flora and fauna reserve, Mulberry Hill and dozens of other amazing locations.
Keely Robertson, a Community Development Officer from Frankston City Council who has worked alongside the community members organising the event said it has been a meaningful project.
“As the project has unfolded, friendships have been made between long-time locals who were part of Langwarrin clubs in the 1960s, as well as newcomers who moved to the area two years ago. What we have in common, is that we are all passionate about Langwarrin,” said Keely.
Prior to joining a bus tour, attendees can browse a Langwarrin-themed expo at the scout hall and connect with local community groups and clubs, and enjoy kids’ activities, a sausage sizzle and coffee van, a photo display.
People can also choose to have a professional photo taken on the day and share a memory of Langwarrin.
“We intend to record people’s stories and create a special book which will become another piece of Langwarrin’s wonderful history,” said Keely.
There’s no need to book for this free community event. Simply come along on the day.
