Published on Friday, 13 May 2022 at 2:29:05 PM

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale will shine the light on the vital role local families play in making our community great as part of National Families Week 2022.

Held from 15 – 21 May 2022, National Families Week celebrates the meaning of family and highlights how they help to teach, support and nurture children in our community.

Being a tight-knit community, Serpentine Jarrahdale is home to a significant number of young families who are actively involved in groups and access important services throughout our area.
