Australia Day in the City of Playford is much anticipated by the community. A free event full of food, activities and entertainment, the City of Playford Australia Day Celebrations have something for everyone.
Mayor Glenn Docherty will be announcing the 2014 Australia Day Award Winners, along with Phil Herreen, Disability Mentor, Senior Australian of the Year 2007 and our Woolworths Australia Day Ambassador. Phil was one of Australia 's most popular speedway drivers until a horrific crash in 1993 left him confined to a wheel chair. After benefiting from the enduring support of his wife, family and the speedway fraternity, Phil understands what it's like for people who don't have a team to support them, so he fills that gap. He's a volunteer peer support advocate, working side by side with injured people, giving them encouragement, inspiration, and hints on life in a wheelchair. He's a mentor to many sports people who have become disabled through accidents. Phillip is also a volunteer facilitator helping youth in trouble for driving and other offences.
With an Outdoor Car Museum, Circus performers, face painting, animal nursery and more, everyone will find something to do this Australia Day.
So mark Sunday 26 January 2014 in your diary and come along from 8am - 12pm for a scrumpious breakfast, loads of activities and plenty of fun.
