Old School Night Out Tour- May to October 2024

Do you remember back in the day going to a local hall on a Saturday night to see a band and catch up with mates? We want to re-create this in our community, so the Grit and Resilience Program team are partnering up with Sweet Buzz and our rural communities for a fun night of music and dancing!
