We have organised parking close to the venue for those who need this. If you can walk, please park at the Huonville Primary School or Huonville High School. For those who like to walk, it is only a short wonder from the Woolworths car park.
The You+Me=Community festival is a great community event for everybody. There is music, food, dance and activities to do in the You+Me Challenge. The activities are designed by Aardvark Adventures and include people of all abilities. Come and have a swing in a crane (wheelchair accessible!), blow some giant bubbles, make a hoolahoop or do the Aardvark Challenge. Most activities are part of teh You+Me Challenge in which many prizes can be won. Inclusing a Pennicott Wilderness voucher or a Bonorong family pass. Community groups and disability service providers work together to make this event a great success. We have a chill out zone to have a rest, a space to get more information about services in the Huon and Channel and a stage with an exciting program of dance and music.
We are happy to have the Choir of High Hope again. They organise a workshop for community members to learn 3 songs to sing with the choir on the day. This will happen on the day: Sunday 4 March, 11am at the PCYC in Huonville. To RSVP send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org Registrations close on saturday 3 March or click here
We are also very excited that Que Sera Sera is launching their Coffee Van on the Festival. Que Sera Sera is managed by 2 long term members of the Huon Disability Network and for them a dream has come through. You can book Que Sera Sera for your event on the day.
Many organisations are happy to give us a hand organising the Festival. Or main sponsor is Caltex Fuel Distribution. Without them there would not be a You+Me=Community Festival. Other organisations have been very generous with their time and/or equipment: Futago (Futago have designed our logo, flyers, programs free of charge. Futago have shown a great understanding of the subject and the sector!), Building Surveyors Tasmania, Willy Smith’s Cider House, Huon Valley Community Bank Branches, Harcourts, Sacred Heart Catholic School, Pennicott Wilderness Journeys, Bonorong, Krik Ashlin Transport Huon&Channel, and of course Aardvark Adventures. Our experience has been that we only had to ask for support and organisations were willing to offer their services free of charge. On behalf of the Huon Disability Network: Thank you!!!
