We are so proud to be part of the working group responsible for the Welcome Baby Celebration. Bundaberg Regional Council has partnered with us, Phonix House, the Family Baby Network, Family Chiropractic Bundaberg, QLD Health and the Taribelang Aboriginal Dance Group of Art to bring you this event. Angela Stedman, who is the Secretary of Wide Bay Kids as well as the Family and Baby Network’s representative, has collaborated within the working group committee to help make this event possible. We love community events such as this, and welcome the opportunity to partner with the other members of the working group. Events like the Welcome Baby Celebration are what Wide Bay Kids is all about.
This year, for the second time, Council is combining the Welcome Baby Celebration and Teddy Bear’s Picnic into The 2016 Welcome Baby Celebration and Family Fun Day Event on 27th June 2015.
