Making Life Easy

Sunday, May 24th, 2009


We have had a steady stream of guests into Bimbadeen over the last few weeks. Most of these have been referrals from the Bega Valley Respite Centre. We have had three children with Cerebral Palsy, Colleen, Sarah & Jake and their carers. There have been a lot of compliments about the quality of accommodation and how easy it is to live in with a wheel chair. This is because of the good circulation space and the set up of the bathrooms.

 This makes Desiree and I very happy. All of the work we put into the design is now starting to pay dividends.

Over the Queens Birthday weekend ( June 5 – 8 ) Merimbula  will stage the 29th Jazz Festival. This has become the biggest weekend outside of Christmas in our town. The whole place turns into one big Jazz jam and we have thousands of people come to stay for the event.

In a moment of “weakness” I decided to do my bit for the festival and volunteered to become one of the announcers for the event.  (Really I am looking forward to becoming involved) You can download a pdf copy of the weekends program or go to the official site on the links below.

I have put together a small Google Adwords advertising program to promote Bimbadeen as a suitable venue for people with disabilities to stay during the festival. Hopefully this will be successful.
