“Family is one of the most important influences in a child’s life, allowing people to feel secure with each other,” Cr Fedeli said.

“We are lucky enough to welcome many families into our area on a weekly basis, and as we continue to grow, I see each person as a valuable member of our growing Camden family.

“There are a range of activities available for our resident to enjoy National Families Week. I encourage you to bring your family together and enjoy one of the many options while remembering that family is priority in our lives.”
