More than 100 people enjoyed a community picnic event held at SPC Kidstown on Saturday.
The People’s Picnic was organised by 2017 Greater Shepparton City Council leadership program participants.
‘‘We were very happy with the turnout and the community support,’’ event co-organiser Jack O’Brien said.
‘‘Especially to all the volunteers who came and took their time to help us run a successful event ... without people like you we couldn’t run this, especially with the budget we were on.’’
The social gathering provided an chance for friends and family to enjoy food, live entertainment and a variety of activities.
‘‘The acapella band Fortessima was a fan favourite and had the kids up and grooving,’’ Mr O’Brien said.
‘‘Alana Baldi (from Cricket Victoria) was kept busy all day, running and playing cricket with the kids — it went really well.’’
Mr O’Brien said his group, including Helen Jeffs, Steve Jeffs and Zia Haidari, thanked the community leadership program for the chance to host the event.
