Thousands forecast for Mordi Fest

Builder for preschool WORKS are set to begin on the new Acacia Avenue Preschool in Mentone after Kingston Council appointed a Kingston builder to complete the exciting $2.189million community project. Mayor Cr Steve Staikos said the project was part of council’s and the state government’s ongoing investment in quality early learning centres in the municipality over many years. “The joint project has been funded by Kingston Council with a $650,000 contribution from the Victorian government,” Cr Staikos said. “This is a great result for the local community and will deliver terrific facilities to give our children a great start in life.” Construction works will begin in coming months with the kindergarten to continue to operate from its existing building while the new facilities are built next door. Once it is completed the current building will be demolished and a new outdoor play space built in its place. “This much-loved community kindergarten has served local families over many years but the building is old and is unable to meet the needs of the growing community into the future,” Cr Staikos said. “The new facility will provide fantastic new indoor and outdoor facilities and will ensure generations of local families have access to a topquality kindergarten.” Clayton South’s Dura Constructions has been awarded the contract to complete the works.

ELECTRIC Fields and The Black Sorrows are set to headline this year’s Mordialloc Food, Wine and Music Festival, which will take place on Saturday and Sunday (3-4 March) at Peter Scullin Reserve. Close to fifty acts will take to the stage across the two-day festival, with a mix of local Victorian and international performers lined up. Kingston mayor Cr Steve Staikos said this year’s event is expected to be the biggest yet, with thousands expected to attend. “We’ve got a vibrant and eclectic program packed with something for absolutely everybody,” Cr Staikos said. “Mordi Fest is our flagship event, providing visitors with fantastic musicians, up and coming bands, and the best gourmet food, regionally made wines, and boutique beer Melbourne has to offer.” More than 45 vendors will be in attendance at the festival, offering attendees a range of different food and drink options. Amongst the vendors will be Mordialloc’s own Bang Bang, and barbecue specialists Big Pig Little Pig, and The Smoke Pit. The event will run from 11am-10pm on Saturday 3 March and 11am-6pm on Sunday 4 March, with entry to cost $2 per person or $5 for a family.
