On the morning of Saturday 26 October the Village Green outside Grand Central was transformed for 3 hours as 92.9 Voice FM, a family community radio station, broadcasted live at the Family Matters Expo, organised and staged by Voice FM to celebrate Family Week.

This year the event focused on connecting communities and community groups within the Toowoomba Region with an emphasis on Health and Wellbeing in the Toowoomba Community.

There were displays from The Base, Toowoomba Youth Services, Peak to Park, Medicare Local, R Health and Vital Balance.

A large crowd walked through the displays and were treated to free rides, giveaways and competitions.

Entertainment was provided by young dancers from Lauren Fickling’s Dancing Stars Group, and Mannequins from the Grid Hybrid staged impromptu performances throughout the expo.

This year, with the assistance of The Grid Hybrid, a community artwork was created. Over 300 individual mini artworks were painted and pieced together to create one giant artwork. The mini artworks will be fixed on permanently and the artwork will be placed on permanent display outside Toowoomba Regional Council.

“Thank you to all those who volunteered their time to make the event a success, the Toowoomba Regional Council for funding the event, and God for such a perfect day,” said Linda Allen, from Voice FM.
