A free kidz party and official ceremony will mark the grand opening of Bendigo Community Health Services’ kidzspace centre at Kangaroo Flat on April 7.

The kidz party from 3pm to 6pm will feature a free barbecue, face painting, jumping castle, snake and crocodile display, animal petting zoo, balloon man, fun photo booth and other children’s activities. 

Guided tours of kidzspace will run throughout the afternoon and there will be plenty of giveaways.

Member for Bendigo East and Minister for Public Transport and Major Projects Jacinta Allan will officially open the kidzspace centre.

Bendigo Community Health Services have created a child and family services hub in the kidzspace centre which delivers a major asset in giving all children their best possible start and a new focus to seriously challenge disadvantage in the community.

An open area with kitchen and nearby vegetable garden beds has been designed for community use with BCHS to provide support through cooking programs.

“We are very excited to see kidzspace finished and ready to play a major role in our efforts to support children and families in the community,” BCHS CEO Kim Sykes said.

“It would be fantastic to see the community turning up for the kidz party to have fun and learn a bit more about kidzspace and what the centre offers.

“We are also honoured to have Minister Jacinta Allan to officially open kidzspace.”

The kidzspace centre was funded through a Victorian Government grant and has been built at 13 Helm Street in Kangaroo Flat.

See you there!
