Back to Beachmere – May 2020

Beachmere’s Sesquicentenary continues to grow as the Back to Beachmere weekend gathers momentum.

From Friday, 15 May to Sunday, 17 May Beachmere people will definitely be the place to be as it launches Beachmere – Then and Now and hosts a Gala evening launching the weekend.

Saturday is a full day of events and activities with children’s games on the beach, the Sand garden competition, street parade and mini festival in Clayton Park and a bush dance at the Beachmere Hub – the newly renovated and refurbished building which has been both the Bowls and RSL club over recent years.

Sunday afternoon the High Tea will include entertainment and a fashion parade and everyone is invited to the “Wrap Party” when the raffles will be drawn and the Silent Auction winners announced.

Tickets for the Gala, Bush Dance and High Tea will go on sale from March/April but all other events are free.  Orders for limited edition “History of Beachmere” merchandise can already be placed with items collected over the Sesquicentenary weekend.
