Glen Forrest Sports Club hosting Day in the Forrest thanks to Shire of Mundaring support

THE Glen Forrest Sports Club is preparing for a community event supported by a $2500 grant from Mundaring Shire.

Day in the Forrest coordinator Ben Smeeton said the December 3 attraction would feature a vintage car display and a live art project.

“Over the course of the day there will be 12 different live music acts over two stages and a thriving food market,” he said.

“Something we’re excited about, that’s new this year, is having a local artist create a live painting of the festival throughout the day,” he said.

“The painting will be done on a huge canvas and will go to auction after the festival.”

Stalls will include a selection of vintage clothing, vinyl records, soaps and oils, and locally-made arts and craft.

The club is one of six successful community groups in the Shire’s latest round of community grants.

Shire President John Daw said the grant program contributed to building a vibrant and connected community.

Day in the Forrest will be held from 11am to 7pm at the Glen Forrest Sports Club in Marnie Road, Glen Forrest.
