By the time you’re reading this we are one week into Docklands Dollars – our plan to get people spending and staying in Docklands.
Eat, Stay, Play, Redeem. As I write this, we’ve just launched it to the Docklands business com- munity, and we’re stoked with the response. We estimate it’s going to generate a spend of $3-5 million into Docklands’ businesses which is ever so needed right now. Follow our socials instagram.com/docklandsmelb and fb.me/melbdock for updates and to see all of our 400 members featured during the duration of the program.
School holidays in Docklands
The Melbourne Star is once again launching Kids Fly Free in the lead up to the school holi- days so head on over to its website to see them terms and details. The District Docklands is also ramping up its features with regular shows, mu- sic and entertainers through the Easter period. Docklands Sunday Markets will again feature the Easter Bunny and it’s likely to be the last we see of decent weather for the year so make your way out on Sunday April 4 from 9am.
ANZAC commemorations in Docklands
Last year we sponsored two buglers to play the last post at dawn during the first COVID lockdown. We’re continuing the theme for 2021 but elevating it to the next level by partnering with The Last Post project.
The Last Post project encourages young musicians to become involved in supporting our veteran community and to play The Last Post on Anzac Day 2021. Participants will be taught to play The Last Post, follow a practice schedule and routine and raise money for a veterans charity by recruiting sponsors to their project. Many young musicians from across Victoria will be participating in The Last Post project this year and it will be highlighted by eight buglers playing across Docklands at dawn on ANZAC day. If you’d like to contribute, then head to our website – docklandscc.com.au and look for The Last Post Project •
