POSTPONED: Batemans Bay Business and Tourism Chamber have rescheduled this event to August 14th, 2021 due to COVID restrictions. Batemans Bay Business & Tourism Chamber and all local Emergency Services crews are inviting local families and visitors to come together for the inaugural BATEMANS BAY EMERGENCY SERVICES FUN DAY on August 14th to recognise the invaluable contribution made by our frontline emergency services workers.
The event is the brainchild of locals Jacklyn Roque from SES Services, and Sharlene Free, Community Engagement Officer for the Surf Beach RFS and the Batemans Bay Business & Tourism Chamber, and started as a 'small thank you' for local SES volunteers. Now, the event has sparked the interest of the whole community and the day has evolved to include all emergency crews across the Eurobodalla Shire, and is supported by prominent local businesses including: Guerrilla Roasters Coffee Mogo Wildlife Park Batemans Bay Soldiers Club
Village Centre Batemans Bay Blackshaw Coastal Real Estate Prouds Batemans Bay Domino’s Pizza Batemans Bay Your Place Creations Evolve Baseball Southern Plumbing
Batemans Bay Business & Tourism Chamber has proudly put their full force behind making this event possible. 'After all that our Batemans Bay community has endured over the last 18 months, we are so proud to have the opportunity to put the spotlight on our local emergency services crews.' Chamber President Mathew Hatcher commented, 'It's great that we can let our community say a huge 'thank you' for the time and ongoing sacrifices these crews make for the good of the Batemans Bay community'
The BATEMANS BAY EMERGENCY SERVICES FUN DAY will be held on August 14th from 9am - 2:00pm at the Hanging Rock Sports Ground in the heart of Batemans Bay. The day will feature food stalls, live music, emergency vehicle displays and a charity softball match from 11am-1pm between community leaders including Mathew Hatcher, Zookeeper Chad from Mogo Wildlife Park and Andrew Constance MP, and local emergency services crew members.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to donate their Service NSW Discover vouchers as kids tickets to Mogo Wildlife Park, which will be donated to bushfire victims still awaiting permanent accommodation.
