The Tuggeranong town centre came alive on Saturday with over 15,000 attending the inaugural SouthFest.
Festival coordinator Taryn Langdon reported that over 200 organisations, businesses stallholders, food vendors and performers pitched in to bring the community together in the streets and laneways of the town centre.
The TCC was proud to be supporting the event that came together with the vision, dedication and hard work of all those involved. SouthFest, a free community event, was made possible by the major Partners LDK Healthcare, McIntyre Property, Icon Water, Wing and the ACT Government as well as many community partners and business supporters.
The sense of community celebration was evident throughout the day in what was a true showcase of life in the Tuggeranong Valley.
Looking ahead, the TCC’s Youth Engagement sub-committee is launching a survey to find out what young people want for Tuggeranong.
The results of this survey will be used to decide on issues to be discussed at our next Youth Forum in March next year, when representatives from all of Tuggeranong high schools and colleges will be invited to participate. It can be found at tuggeranong.org.au.
The next meeting of the TCC will be held on December 4, where we will hear from expert John Feehan about how dung beetles can help with climate change. We will also hear about the current consultation on waste to energy, and finish up with Christmas nibbles.
