A large crowd attended the Melrose Park Cinema under the stars.

Around 400 local residents attended the Melrose Park Cinema under the stars, eager to enjoy an evenings entertainment at the free community event sponsored by PAYCE.

Genuine thanks expressed.

Genuine thanks expressed by the P&C Coordinator Chantel and Principal Clare claimed the night as "a great community success".

Once initial set up was complete, members of the Melrose Park Public School and residents of the Melrose Park area began to arrive around 6pm. They had been informed of the event through a series of flyers distributed throughout the school and surrounding area, which clearly indicated the community focused nature of this event and PAYCE's involvement in the cinema night. Banners were also put on display around the public school.

The P&C organising committee were instrumental in the planning and management of this highly successful event. The committee is a great indicator of how well local Melrose Park residents are responding to PAYCE's initial involvement in and around the community.

Brian Boyd, PAYCE MD, said the response from local residents was fantastic. "To see such a large turn-out for this free evening of cinema demonstrates the strength of the Melrose Park community," said Mr. Boyd. "PAYCE is proud to play a role in such a positive event," Brian Boyd continued.

Stalls on the day included a PAYCE stall, a St John's Ambulance Tent, a Schibello Coffee supported van a Turkish Gozleme food truck and a fairy floss stall. These stalls contributed heavily on the day and gave the event a wonderful community centred, festival vibe.

PAYCE was thanked for its support of the highly successful day, as they were once again recognised for their fantastic support to the public school and to the wider Melrose Park community. Many people expressed a hope that the support would continue for the event next year.
