News from out neighbours in St George:

Our 2nd Arts Trail gives you the chance to adventure around the beautiful St George Park and
surrounding streets for a weekend of local arts, inspiration and community. The Theme for this
year’s Trail is RECYCLING we are encouraging artists and visitors to think about our use of
plastic, littering and sustainable living.
