Big appetites at Tocumwal Brekkie

Following the success of the inaugural Tocumwal Chamber of Commerce Big Breakfast in 2011, a new tradition was born.

The 2012 event was held on Sunday, and was another great success.

Held on the Tocumwal Foreshore, hundreds of adults were officially counted having breakfast.

The beauty of the Big Breakfast is the people providing the food are locals, all raising money for their organisations, with the money going back into the town.

The sit-down breakfast flooded the foreshore, with tables winding from the playground all the way down Anzac Avenue.

Tocumwal Primary School entertained crowds with a recorder performance.

Children had their faces painted and everyone tucked in to a delicious breakfast.

There was something to tempt all tastebuds with pancakes and strawberries, coffee, bacon and egg rolls, croissants, french toast, fresh fruit, yoghurt and more.

It was truly a smorgasbord of community involvement and organisers were ‘‘thrilled’’ with the morning.
