Outstanding community event for all the family!

The Westleigh Waterboard Alliance committee was pleased by the turnout of more than 3,000 people, and the overwhelmingly positive feedback we’ve had so far. Thank you to everyone who came along to make it such a fun night.

The event brought together at Ruddock Park so many people within our lovely community, many of whom have taken the chance on social media to share their photos and show their appreciation of all the hard work that the volunteers put in to host this function. The finale of the evening was the fireworks display.

For such a small community to pull this kind of event together in such a short space of time was a remarkable achievement. It could not have been possible without the energy, enthusiasm and generosity of the community at large, and in particular the volunteers, sponsors and donors.


Special thanks to our sponsors who helped to make it such a fabulous event.

  • Beaumont Tiles Thornleigh
  • NorthConnex

Our gratitude also to Westleigh RFS fire crew, who attended with their fire truck.


A MASSIVE thank you for the musical entertainment ‘Ministry of Rock’ – our live band for the night who performed Aussie rock covers – without charging any money for the gig – the Thornleigh West Public School Stage ‘Funk’ Band and the didgeridoo player, Michael Bellenger. The music certainly added to the festive atmosphere.


We also thank the various sporting groups for sharing in the fun (and many of you volunteering to help), to make it such a memorable event. A MASSIVE thank you to all the volunteers who help to make the night possible.

The volunteers who stayed behind afterwards to help clean up, left the park spotless, leaving no trace of the event, thank you. The food truck was out and the gate locked by around 10pm – showing how an event like this can be 100% family friendly fun.
