COMMUNITY TOUCH GAME TO CELEBRATE NAIDOC WEEK

There will be some sore legs tonight, after many young Tamworthians took part in a three-hour touch football game.

The game was part of a family fun day, held at the Gipps Street fields, for NAIDOC Week.

“It’s another opportunity for them to witness Aboriginal culture being celebrated and it’s a positive and accepted experience throughout NAIDOC week.”

It was also a chance for local police and firefighters to come together with members of the local community.

“It’s too often that we see those services in points of crisis and it’s nice to join them and build some good relationships in a time where it is actually more appreciated.”
