Under blue skies and with laughter in the air, the Tambellup community was all smiles on Sunday as the Shire of Broomehill-Tambellup and Tambellup Community Resource Centre put on a family fun day.

An ice-cream truck and three water based inflatables headlined the day, as parents and children from across the region converged on Tambellup Oval to make the most of the free event.

The shire also provided afternoon tea for those who came down.

About 5pm, the inflatables were swapped for a bar.

Burgers, hot dogs, ice cream drumsticks and chips were all available for dinner as Tambellup musician Andrew Bradshaw provided some live music.

The dinner was put on by Tambellup Hockey Club.

Shire president Mark Paganoni hailed the event as a success.

“The event was a great way to engage the community and have a bit of fun,” Mr Paganoni said.

The shire supported the event, but Mr Paganoni said the event was organised by the workers at the Tambellup CRC.

CRC coordinator Rebekka Polack said the inflatable-based fun day was something they had never done before.

“We have brought the city to the country with this event,” she said.

“This was an unique event which gave families in rural communities the chance to experience something different.

“The kids absolutely enjoyed their time and it was very well received by the community.”

She said the event could not have happened without the help of the shire and volunteers throughout the community.
