As I take a walk through Cronulla on a typical day it is no surprise to see children and their carers enjoying the open space and relaxing atmosphere. It is a place to make new friends or meet up with old ones while enjoying the outdoor shopping and seaside lifestyle. Toddler Tuesdays, a new initiative of Cronulla Beach CBD, aims to bring together a community of young Mums, Dads and Carers.
Each week the large Pavilion Stage area of Cronulla Mall will be transformed for Toddler Tuesday. Children will have plenty of play equipment to enjoy with new pieces added each week. The fenced play area gives toddlers plenty of room to explore whilst still enclosed in one safe spot. While supervising their toddlers, parents and carers can relax in the adjoining seating area and enjoy time to chat.
Toddler Tuesdays are suitable for children aged up to 6 years. The facilities are fully undercover and operate from 9.30am to 1.00pm. The first Toddler Tuesday will be 5 February 2013 followed by every Tuesday during school terms until mid November. Sessions are on a drop in basis so no bookings are required and they’re FREE!
Next time you pop in to Cronulla Central you may notice that something has changed…
The photographs of the Spring Festival have been replaced with a brand new photographic exhibition by local amateur photographer Peter Sparks. Around Every Corner is an exciting new exhibition showcasing the Sutherland Shire’s natural beauty and stunning scenery from rivers and beaches to sea and gardens.
Peter Sparks, a Sutherland Shire resident since 1959, became interested in photography as a teenager. His interest developed into a passion as he learnt through courses, workshops, books and by studying other photographers and their approach to work. “The aim is to communicate my vision with others, for the photo to impact the viewer and that they will feel what I felt when photographing. Creating an emotive response in the viewer brings me as much pleasure as the photographer. Then I have achieved my aim – the photo is successful” Peter said.
The exhibition will be in the Cronulla Central Gallery near Cronulla Library from 1 December 2012 to 28 February 2013. The works of art are displayed in frames along the wall and on TV’s screens, it is free to visit and photographs are available for purchase. The Gallery is open 7am to 9pm daily.
The Cronulla Central Gallery is an exhibition space for amateur and professional photographers, new media artists, community groups and commercial exhibitors. For information about exhibiting in the gallery please contact Karyn Loughnan at Cronulla Beach CBD Management on 9527 2100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
