Thank you for having Little Squirtz face painting at the Deans Marsh Festival.  It was a very successful day for us and we will definitely be back again next year. I just wanted to thank you also for such a well organised event.  As I attend quite a few, you guys did an awesome job.  I also had a lot of the public comment on how much they were enjoying themselves.

Thanks to all of you at the Cottage and congratulations on running another great community event! Over the years I have found the main feedback from our festival goers has been the fantastic community atmosphere we generate and that didnt change this year. Well done.

Weather was good and my site was a good spot. So happy I could leave the car there behind my stall, thanks, it makes things a lot easier too.  It is an enjoyable community feel festival and I will hope to come back in Sept and Nov

Thanks for having us on Sunday, it was such a lovely wholesome day and great for families.

Congratulations on a very well organised festival. We know that lots of work and volunteer hours go into an event such as this so please pass on our best wishes to everyone.

We had a top day and much fun was had by all. Please feel free to clock us in for next year’s markets and festival, along with the Winter Solstice that you mentioned at the festival.

Just want to congratulate you all on what fantastic effort you all put in to make the festival a great one.  Thank you so much for making our sites larger with plenty of room, even for our vehicles.  A great day and financially rewarding.

Thank you for a great market, it was amazingly organised and ran very smoothly.

Deans Marsh Festival

You are invited to a meeting in response to a number of local residents expressing interest in forming a local refugee action group in Deans Marsh. Members of the Combined Refugee Action Group will be attending to discuss how we can make it happen.

Come along at 6.30pm on Wednesday the 18th of April to the Deans Marsh Hall.

We will also be screening "Freedom Stories a collaborative documentary project from Flying Carpet Films. It explores the achievements and stories of former ‘boat people’ who arrived in Australian waters seeking asylum from the Middle East around 2001, a defining year in Australian politics. Locked in remote detention centres and then placed on temporary protection visas, their limbo lasted for years. Now Australian citizens, they are finally building secure lives and contributing to their new country."
