Welcoming the Babies 2018

Federal Member for Blaxland, Jason Clare MP, officially welcomed over 100 babies into our local community at a special ceremony held at Bass Hill Plaza on Saturday.

More than 500 people attended the eleventh “Welcoming the Babies” event to celebrate new births in our local community and say thanks to all the mums and dads for the important work they do.

On the day mums and dads received a special certificate and a gift bag which contained useful samples and information about raising babies and toddlers.

“Raising a child is hard work. It’s important that parents know about all the great support services available in our local community which can help with their babies health and development.

“It was great to see so many people at the event on Saturday morning, our youngest to be welcomed was Alisha Wickman, born just two weeks ago.”

Mz Dinaz dance studio entertained the crowd with a number of dazzling dance performances and Peppa Pig also made a special guest appearance on the day.
