Pool Manager Stephen Waterman said it was a fantastic night at the pool. “Over 70 people attended, there was lots of families and little ones and it was great to see the high level of supervision of the younger kids during the night."

“There were three massive inflatables, face painting, spooky music and loads of cold cut fresh fruit as well. We prepared a massive feed for the crowd which consisted of sausages, fried rice, spooky crispy chicken bites (wontons) and a beef and vegetable dish which everyone loved.”

“I would like to give a huge thanks to all our partners and supporters, without you we could not have these events,” he said. The event was pulled together as a joint effort between Warmun pool staff, staff from Purnululu School (Frog Hollow), and other local community members.

“The principal and teachers from Frog Hollow – Libby, Carol, Amanda – and Libby’s husband Steve who helped with the food, supervision and face painting; Cinda who helped with the food and face painting. It was a fantastic night with all the families coming together and everyone assisting throughout the night.”
