THE only thing better than taking part in local community events is getting a free foot massage while doing it.
At this year’s third annual Mundaring Anglican Parish family fun day there will be an op shop market, children’s carnival rides, a magician, classic car show, a performance by the Hills Choir and of course, the favoured foot massages.
Reverend Kim Thomas said there was something on offer for everybody.
“Our Community Fair on October 13 is a great time where people can come and enjoy a wonderful devonshire tea, sausage sizzle or get a great bargain at the op shop,” she said.
“There’s also plenty for the kids to do, face painting, a bouncy castle, merry-go-round and a terrific magician, and it’s all free.”
The community fair began in 2014 to celebrate the Church of the Epiphany’s centenary birthday.
To celebrate, volunteers wore period costumes and later decided to hold a fair every second year.
When Reverend Thomas, an ex-police officer, made the move from England to Mundaring Anglican Parish two years ago, she suggested the fair run annually.
She said the decision to move to the Perth Hills was a great one although she missed her son and two young grandsons.
“I miss them a lot but they know how much I love living in Australia, so they’re ok with my choice to live here,” she said.
“Last year I thought I’d try something different, so I learned to ride a motorbike, I just love the freedom of getting out on the wide-open roads here.”
The Mundaring Anglican Parish op shop is open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 8.30am to 1pm.
