Due to the inclement weather and the chance of more rain, the Toowoomba Says No to Violence Street March & Family Fun Day in Queens Park that was to be held this Sunday 17th October has been postponed to a date to be advised.
TSN2V spokesman Peter Rookas said it was a very disappointing decision to make. “Because the main emphasis is around family and having safe, wholesome fun in the park, the state of the grounds in Queens Park would not allow for the children’s rides & games to be set-up. It would also be very damp under foot. I know how much our Champions of TSN2V and families in the region were looking forward to this day, but Mother Nature always has the last say with outdoor events.”
Mr. Rookas said a decision regarding this years TSN2V Street March & Family Fun Day will be made very soon and full details will be made available to the public immediately to ensure as many people as possible can attend.
While the day can’t proceed, the message is still clear; the Toowoomba community will not tolerate violence. By saying that violence is not an option, Toowoomba can maintain its reputation as a desirable place to live. The goal of TSN2V is to create a safe, healthy and peaceful Toowoomba by working together to reduce violence because violence is preventable and not inevitable.
