Wednesday, October 7, 2015 - 12:29 PM

Walter Day Park at St Leonards Private Estate played host to the St Leonards-Dayton Residents Association Community Fair on the 5th September. The Swans District in partnership with Little Group and Progress Developments delivered a series of skill development drills and modified games to promote AFL in Caversham, Dayton and West Swan.

The Community Fair saw a swathe of people participate in a number of different activities designed to enrich the broader Swan Valley community. The Community Fair saw kids big and small interact in a series of activations including Auskick, DJs, jumping castles, pet rescue, art workshops, face painting and petting zoos. The Community Fair also saw a number of diverse stalls which demonstrated the diversity of the Swan Valley including the burgeoning Indian population with service providers such as Turbans & Trust. Kids from St Leonard Private Estate and the beyond the Swan Valley participated in a number of Auskick drills and modified games including Kick-to-Kick and King of the Pack, which also managed to entice the participation of some parents.

Swans District staff donated prizes to the spectators including Swans District equipment sponsored by Little Group and Progress Developments, whilst promoting the benefits of playing AFL at local junior community clubs including Caversham JFC. The St Leonards Community Fair provided Caversham JFC and Swans District with the perfect opportunity to promote Auskick and junior community club pathways at Caversham JFC in 2016. The St Leonards Community Fair, which was proudly supported by Swans District Principal Partners, Little Group and Progress Developments, displayed the positive linkages between community bodies in Caversham, Dayton and West Swan.
