It’s time to make bunting together

Help to decorate The Terrace this Friday!

We’re giving the recycled sculpture competition more room to move this year, with a display in The Terrace shopping centre from Tuesday 11th – Sunday 26th March. So Mooroolbark Christian Fellowship are helping us to make it look nice and we’d love you to come along.

When: 10am – 2pm Friday 10th March

Where: The Terrace, 66 – 74 Brice Ave, Mooroolbark

Beautiful home-made bunting with recycled material, hanging in front of trees and a blue sky.

If you have the following, please bring them:

  • Pieces of bright colourful fabric; old sheets, pillowcases, shirts, etc. can be cut up and used. No smaller than an A4 piece of paper.
  • Scissors (clearly labelled with your name).
  • A sewing machine if you’re a competent sewer and would like to use your own.
  • Any thread, tape or wide bias binding that you would like to donate.
  • A plate to share for nibbles?

How:

  • Mary and Veronica will be there to show you how you can help, they will also be the main “sewing” people on the day.
  • If you don’t have sewing skills but can iron, cut out, use a hot glue gun, make cups of tea (we hope to have access to a kettle!), donate fabric or yummy treats, or hang bunting once complete, then we would still love you to come along for a chat and join in the fun.

The Aim:

  • To produce enough bunting to decorate some of the interior of The Terrace corridors.

Please RSVP to Mary Bourchier at mary.bourchier@optusnet.com.au or just come along on the day.

Meet Jim Penman!

Yes, we are talking about THE Jim of Jim’s Mowing and all of the Jim’s Group franchises.

Hear him speak 16939241_1367665283296274_8822433373637671915_n.jpgat 2pm in the Jim’s TradeNet Local Business Hub and you may even land yourself a free signed copy of his latest book.

This is a real treat, particularly for small, home and online business owners or those thinking of starting their own business. Jim will be sharing some of his own success strategies and introducing one of his latest ventures, Jim’s TradeNet.

Jim’s TradeNet became a sponsor of your community festival this year and they’ve been amazingly supportive!

Supporting local businesses is part of the Celebrate Mooroolbark ethos, and now also part of our new (in-the-pipeline) sustainability policy about reducing the miles between supplier and buyer. Jim’s TradeNet is essentially a business trade exchange system, available to any business big and small. It could also be a great way for local businesses to support each other.
