Community Summer Picnic – say ‘Yello’ to the New Year

Coffs Harbour Jetty Foreshores Jordan Esplanade, COFFS HARBOUR, NSW, Australia

The holiday season can be a tricky time for some, especially if people are without social or family supports. So, some of us from the local Wesley Mission Suicide Prevention Network - Coffs Coast Suicide Prevention Initiative - thought it may be nice to have a social event instead of a meeting in January. Come along anytime after 11am on Tuesday 9th January 2024 for a Community Summer Picnic. Everyone is welcome, and the gathering is BYOE (bring your own everything), as we are not supplying food. We thought it would be nice to gather at the Jetty Foreshores, along Jordan Esplanade, Coffs Harbour. The theme is Yellow, so bring out your summer yellowness, your picnic rug, and look out for the yellow decorations near one of the shade shelters. This is not a supervised event so please ensure all dependents are cared for. Look forward to seeing some new faces there.
