|Bellarine Kids: number ONO
Thankyou to all of our founding members, without your support Bellarine Kids may have been put back into the ‘too hard basket’ for another three years!
The ongoing support for Bellarine Kids continues to make me feel a little overwhelmed and nervous at times but mostly I feel very excited with all that we have achieved in this short time. This little idea has plagued me for ages, until one day I just thought, right, stop procrastinating, start a Facebook page, and see where it goes.
Well, I must say the response has been fantastic! A big ‘thankyou’ to all who have helped my new venture to take off! Cheers to the Bellarine Kids Facebook community! Your posts, comments, emails and likes are great. I love reading what you have to write, and I am sure that I speak for other members as well.
I hope that Bellarine Kids has helped (and continues to help) you find fun and free things to do, and fun things to make, eat, and play. We aim to continue to provide you with yummy local, kid friendly places to eat, great things to buy, fun things to see and support.
