Members of the community are invited to attend a barbecue in Billabong Park on Friday, November 24 from 6pm.
During the event, attendees can take the White Ribbon Oath as part of a commitment to make Gloucester a safer place.

The Bucketts Way Neighbourhood Group has been running a raffle for a handmade quilt which will be drawn on the day.
Proceeds of the raffle will be going toward domestic violence prevention and awareness. Tickets can still be purchased for $2 from Southern Belle Hairdresser, where the quilt is on display or the BWNG office at 88 King Street, Gloucester, across from the MidCoast Council building.
This year’s White Ribbon Day is in support of the STOP Kit (See, Talk, Offer support, Prevent), providing knowledge and skills to help prevent violence against women.
