Folks! Roll up roll up to our upcoming CLOTHES SWAP. Should be a fab evening with delicious vegan share platters, adults and kids clothes, a raffle with great prizes, drinks and good times. All funds raised go towards BLPC Playgroup, goodness knows we need them post covid!

NightlightsFriday March 19th, 2021, 7:30PMBelgrave Lake Park Cottage PlaygroupBelgrave Lake Park Cottage Playgroup presents Nightlights, bi-monthly social event open to all community members.

THIS MONTH- Nightlights: Swap and Share!

This Nightlights is a fundraiser featuring a clothes swap and delicious share plates prepared by vegan cooking extraordinaire Jennifer McAdam.

All proceeds go towards Belgrave Lake Park Cottage Playgroup. This event will help BLPC Playgroup fundraise for the installation of a new electric oven and replenishing our sandpit. Like so many organisations and businesses, our bank account took a big hit during covid - so we need all the help we can get!

Cost: $10 for members, $15 for non-members. Kids Welcome.

Bookings essential. Follow the link to book today: www.trybooking.com/BOPDJ

MORE INFO:
Wholesome platters will include decadent plant-based cheeses, creamy and zesty dips made with local produce and scrumptious home-baked goodies.

Booze and delicious non-alcoholic beverages will be available by donation for a rollicking good time while you peruse an array of FREE clothes and shoes all whilst nibbling on a tasty treat. Feel free to BYO if you prefer.

Bring your old hole-ridden clothes and linen etc to add to our 'rag bag' and save from landfill. We will take them to a recycling facility to be turned into rags - gold coin donation.

Get a raffle ticket to go in the draw for some awesome prizes including an Artful Splodgers art pack and a voucher for face painting at your kiddos’ next birthday party!


The fine print:
• Adult and children’s clothes, shoes and small bags are all welcome
• All items should be in a clean condition
• Any unwanted items will be delivered to a local op-shop
• Included in your ticket is a delicious share plate, tea and coffee. Alcoholic drinks and delicious non-alcohol drinks (eg. kombucha) available for a donation. BYO alcohol is fine too.

Can't make it but keen to support? Great condition, clean, pre-loved clothes can be dropped in the foyer of Belgrave Lake Park Cottage from Monday March 15. If the Cottage is locked/unattended when you arrive, please leave them inside the gate at the front door.
Bookings essential. Follow the link to book today: www.trybooking.com/BOPDJ

This week’s featured playspace: teeny tiny playground at Howard Norman Reserve beside Mount Dandenong shops.

This is a small and simple affair, the main draw card being the chance to potter about in the nearby shops, which are delightfully local (including a great fruit and veg shop, and an organics shop). They stand in stark contrast to other towns on the Ridge like Sassafras and Olinda which cater predominantly to tourists. Do it!
