St Augustine’s School and Parish Fete Committee has decided to postpone its 2012 fete until March 22 next year.
A statement issued by the committee last week said the decision to postpone the fete was taken owing to the economic pressures faced by some families and businesses affected by the uncertainty surrounding investors of Banksia Securities Limited.
The statement said the committee had spent a substantial amount of time preparing for the fete but felt it was inappropriate to be raising funds for the school and parish at this time.
However, the committee believed it was important to come together as a community to offer support and take the opportunity to enjoy the simple things in life, such as the achievements of students and their teachers.
Instead of holding the fete, the committee is now inviting everyone to attend a community barbecue on Friday, November 9 to celebrate The St Augustine’s Art Festival.
