Sizzling!: Festival celebrate’s summer’s arrival

The second Botany and Flat Bush Summer Festival took off on a bright and sunny start at the Ormiston Activity Centre on Sunday.

A live band set the tempo of the upbeat morning while plenty of dance performances including Zumba and Tai Chi got diverse communities participating in group activities.

Hosted by Howick Local Board member Peter Young who chairs the Botany and Flat Bush Ethnic Association, Howick Local Board members David Collings took charge of the sausage sizzle and even sung along with the local band; while Katrina Bungard did a bit of Zumba and Bo Burns helped with serving barbecued sausages on bread.  All in all, a fun community event to bring in some summer loving.
