The City of Casey has thrown its support behind four local events on Friday 26 January that are open to all residents and FREE to attend. Hampton Park, Tooradin, Cranbourne and Berwick will each host an event with a variety of activities that all members of the family can enjoy.

City of Casey Mayor Cr Geoff Ablett said it was fantastic to see local community groups hosting events for their residents, and encouraged people to head along and join in the fun.

“The City of Casey would like to thank its community groups for putting on these events for the benefit of our residents and I hope to see plenty of people joining in the local celebrations,” he said.
