RESIDENTS should be on the lookout in their mailboxes for details about a pop-up community event happening in the area.

The City of Rockingham’s pop-up community events are held in selected parks and reserves with a focus on helping residents connect with each other and the wide range of services, activities, events and programs the City offers.

Pop-up community events are held on an invitation-only basis for residents who live within a 300m radius of a chosen park. Invitations are sent out in the post in the weeks leading up to the event.

In 2019 residents can look forward to events that connect them with local community groups and service providers. There will also be opportunities to learn more about City services such as SmartWatch, LitterBusters, Waste Services, Pop-Up Libraries and community programs offering recreation and support.

Mayor Barry Sammels said the events were a fantastic way for people to make new connections with their neighbours and important City services.

“The City’s pop-up community events are popular occasions, with anywhere between 150 to 300 people regularly attending,” he said.

“By keeping the events small we are able to foster a real sense of community spirit.

“Guests have the opportunity to enjoy a sausage sizzle, soft serve ice cream and a warm cuppa in a welcoming environment.

“I strongly encourage residents who receive an invitation in the mail to take part in their local pop-up community event.”
