Rain failed to dampen smiles at Saturday’s Heathcote Community Connect event.

A strong crowd gathered in Camp St to see what the town’s community organisations had on offer.

There was a long queue for the Lions’ free sausage sizzle but the wait wasn’t so bad because there was entertainment from talented locals on the stage.

The SES demonstrated the jaws-of-life and the Z-pulleyused for getting injured people out of inhospitable terrain.

The Snakebusters exhibit, where people could hold a python or a lizard, was a big hit.

The fire brigade was on hand with life-saving information and Captain Koala was a hit with the crowd.

Heathcote Primary School pupils served up tea and cakes and Heathcote Health staff were on hand with health promotion messages and information.

Several other groups also had stalls and the community postcards on display showed the many different answers to the question, ‘‘What makes Heathcote great for you?’’
