Federal Member for Blaxland, Jason Clare MP, encourages local families to register for ‘Welcoming the Babies 2012’.
This year’s event will be held on Saturday 15 September at Bankstown West Public School Hall, William Street, Bankstown from 9:00 to 10:30am.
“Having a child is one of the most important decisions that you will ever make. Welcoming the babies gives us a chance to thank mums and dads for the invaluable work they put in to raising our next generation.
“In the last year, Bankstown experienced the third highest number of births of any suburb in NSW. That’s why I think it’s important to hold a free family event that officially celebrates new births in our community.
“Every baby that attends will receive a special certificate and gift bag which contains useful information for mums and dads about services available to them and their babies to make parenting a little easier,” Mr Clare said.
Registration for ‘Welcoming the Babies’ is essential. All children under the age of 2 are eligible. Parents should call Jason’s office on 9790 2466 to register their child.
Registrations close on Friday 14 September at 5pm.
