COMMUNITY MINDED: Steve Robertson, Terry Andrews and Allan Purcell at the stables by the Causeway where a Family Open Day is planned this month.

There will be a Family Open Day at the Causeway on Monday, January 28, from 10.30am to 3.30pm.

The Family Day is centred around an outdoor broadcast by local radio station Fleurieu FM.

It is also an opportunity for the public to visit the Horse Drawn Tram at the Causeway and meet the members of the Clydesdale team Jay Jay, Albert, Elliot, Misty, Murray, Karni, Isabella and Scotty.

“It is an opportunity to have a photo taken with your favourite horse,” Victor Harbor Horse Tram Authority Board Member Terry Andrews said.

“Also present will be announcers/disc jockeys from Radio Fleurieu FM and it is hoped the community will support by coming out to the Horse Tram terminal at the Causeway.”

“The Family Day is also an opportunity for Fleurieu FM and the Victor Harbor Horse Tram to recruit volunteers.

“All we need is one or two hours per month or as many as you would like to give.”

To assist or for more information on the Family Day to celebrate the Victor Harbor Horse Tram contact Terry Andrews on 0451 140 543.

Other members of the co-ordinating group are Steve Robertson and Allan Purcell from Radio Fleurieu FM.

This family day is an opportunity to recognise the start of a new chapter for the Victor Harbor Horse Tram and the establishment of its new management Authority.

It is also a great opportunity to showcase the importance of community radio stations like Radio Fleurieu FM and the role they play in promoting local attractions.

“The Horse Drawn Tram has always been loved by our community and this event is an opportunity for locals to reconnect with this iconic Victor Harbor experience,” Victor Harbor Horse Tram Authority chairperson Carol Schofield said.

“Please come down to the Causeway and meet the Board Members, staff and volunteers behind the Horse Drawn Tram.

“Talk to us about the volunteering opportunities or just enjoy the chance to pat one of the beautiful Clydesdales.”

There will be people on hand to answer questions, as well as other activities that will be free for the residents and visitors.

The South Coast Camera Club will also be at the open day capturing images of the community interacting with the staff, Clydesdales and volunteers.

Allan Purcell said it was an opportunity for both voluntary organisations to work together and assist in promoting a good news event, which as a community can assist each other to develop their respective networks.

“It will be a day for the whole family with plenty of activity,” Mr Purcell said.
