Life is a tapestry

AROUND 1200 people headed down to Shearn Memorial Park last Saturday to celebrate the Maylands Green Day.

Bayswater council put on the day of food and forest-friendly fun to encourage people to look after their environment, embrace natural spaces in their neighbourhoods and learn how to live more sustainably.

“In today’s digital world maintaining a connection to the natural world and promoting environmental awareness is becoming increasingly important,” said Bayswater mayor Barry McKenna.

He says he hopes the day “will encourage families to discover their local parks and gardens”.
