Running away with the circus

We went to see the Weber's Circus show at Camden Equestrian Park on Saturday afternoon. I haven't been to the circus since I was about 6 years old so I really didn't know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised, although the performers made some of the stunts look way too easy. There really was something for everything and while keeping the 2yo still was sometimes a bit of a challenge, the older kids were focused on the ring the whole time. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We had A reserve seats and had a good view. The circus packed up and left yesterday but I highly recommend a visit next time they come to town.

On the way home, as the sun was setting over the pastures and wineries of Camden, hubby asked, "Where else can you live that's 15 minutes from fields and country?" Where else indeed. We love Macarthur.

More paediatric services needed

Campbelltown Hospital has a fantastic paediatric department and children's ward. But families with children requiring surgery or more serious illness often have to travel outside the area to Westmead Children's Hospital. A paediatric surgeon at Campbelltown Hospital would mean that some families wouldn't have to incur the heartache and cost of travelling substantial distances for treatment. Please sign the petition for an expanded paediatric team at Campbelltown Hospital because Macarthur kids deserve to be treated close to home:
