LOTS HAPPENING

  • FRIDAY REBELLIONS at THE GAZEBO are hooking up with lots of local and XR folk from around Australia who are passing through and we are making great contacts.

If you haven’t yet participated,  come on down between 11.30 and 1.30 every Friday.

  • We are planning a market stall at the weekly Summer Markets. Looking to hold a couple of flash crowd events. If you want to join in contact me or Kate –
    • An Angel Choir
    • An Act of DISCObediance – Just ‘Staying Alive’.
  • At the Markets we plan to run some making workshops, talk to people and have some fun.
  • XR has acquired a badge maker. A good way to spread the word.
  • Alison Green has made us a screen of the XR logo and is willing to print people’s blank T-shirts of you want.

We are also going to try and amass a quantity of good quality second-hand shirts to print and sell.  If you have any to donate see me, Phil  or Kate

At the FIGHT FOR THE BIGHT ACTION.
