Vicki congratulates Eltham Rotary Club on hosting a very successful Eltham Festival and acknowledges their hard work in organising the event.

Vicki WARD (Eltham) (09:53): Congratulations to Eltham Rotary for the wonderful Eltham festival. We have had to wait three years to celebrate this annual festival because of the COVID pandemic and the November rains last year. Our community looks forward to this terrific festival with a huge amount of excitement, and no-one was disappointed this year. Thousands upon thousands of people flocked to Alistair Knox Park over the two days of the festival, with many enjoying the fireworks on Saturday night. We saw market stalls, wonderful food and wine, an array of musical talent from bands to buskers, carnival rides and awesome community organisations sharing their work with locals. My sincere thanks go to the Rotary Club of Eltham, who worked tirelessly to make this event a success, and to all community partners who support this festival and make it such a memorable event. I thank Nillumbik council for their financial support of this festival and look forward to more funding in the future.
