FAMILY FUN FETE REGATTA PARK


It was a warm evening at Regatta Park Penrith, perfect for the family to gather and enjoy an evening of activities and an outdoor movie.  To raise awareness for women and their families affected by domestic violence, The Nepean Domestic Violence Network held their Family Fun Fete on 19th February 2016.
 
 

 
 
"Mars need Mums" began playing as night fell, and everyone settled down on picnic rugs and outdoor chairs to enjoy the movie.
The event was well attended by members of Nepean Domestic Violence Network, local politicians,  the local fire brigade and members of the community dealing with domestic violence.
