Maranoa Festival a success

The weather cleared long enough for the many hundreds of people who attended today’s Maranoa Festival at the Maranoa Gardens in Balwyn. There were activities for all age groups and interests, from facepainting to guided tours of the beautiful gardens.

I personally talked to a number of people at the festival about issues that matter to them in the ward and the wider area of Boroondara, and there were a number of very interesting and enlightened responses. As I strongly believe in real engagement with and of the community, rather than merely ‘consulting’, this provided a great opportunity for these issues to be raised.
