Country & Western Day with award-winning bush poet

In celebration of Country Music Month, Peninsula Villages held a Country and Western Day on Tuesday 27 September, where we played host to bush poet Carol Heuchan, singer Steve Richards and Umina Kid’s Klub.

The Country and Western Day presented a fantastic opportunity for residents to enjoy live entertainment, spend time with old friends, meet new ones and enjoy a BBQ lunch.

Bush poet Carol Heuchan, formerly a horse riding teacher and show horse judge, performed her award-winning bush poetry in the main hall at the village. Heuchan has enjoyed worldwide success with four best-selling books, five award-winning CDs and nine Australian Bush Laureate awards to her name.

As a community not for profit organisation, we regularly hold entertainment days, enriching social wellbeing and providing exciting cultural experiences for our residents.

“We have a lot of poetry fans here at Peninsula Villages. Everyone has a great time seeing Carol perform her famous bush poetry,” said CEO Shane Neaves.

“The Umina Kids Klub also performed a play for the residents. It was wonderful to see the children engaging with the community and our residents always get so much joy from seeing the kids,” Shane concluded.
