Community event of the year

Flo Ransley and Lydia Hunt with the Community Event Award.
THE annual fundraising event that pays for swimming lessons for young students has been named the Derwent Valley's Community Event of the Year.

The Taste of Fairview is organised every year by the School Association at Fairview Primary School. All classes prepare food for the event, which usually also includes food stalls and barbecues.

Funds raised from the event help to cover the cost of early childhood learn-to-swim programs for students in Prep to Grade 2.

Presenting the Community Event of the Year Award at the Australia Day celebration last Tuesday, Mayor Martyn Evans said the learn-to-swim program funded by the Taste of Fairview directly benefited more than 100 families each year. The award was accepted by Fairview Primary School Association members Lydia Hunt and Flo Ransley.
