Welcome back to our Melville Community blog!

It’s been a busy month full of sunshine and great community vibes.

The summer BBQ at the Point on 17th July was a huge success, and we were lucky enough to have good weather on our side. 

The events committee did an amazing job cleaning up the area and putting together a feast of burgers, salads, and snacks, and we would like to express our gratitude to all the residents who came along and brought a side or snack to add to the spread.

Keep an eye on our events calendar, and if you haven’t already, join our Facebook group to stay updated with the latest community news.

Kudos to Kevin Dixon, and a big thank you to all who came out to listen to this peculiar and wonderful historical talk.

It’s FREE to take part, and last year 75% of children taking part improved their reading skills over the holidays.
