Wristbands to reunite lost children with their family this Easter
The Bendigo Easter Festival is introducing a new initiative this year designed to help reunite children who may become lost at the festival with their families.
City of Greater Bendigo Major Events Manager Terry Karamaloudis said wristbands will be provided free to parents and guardians this Easter.
“Parents or guardians will be able to write a contact name and mobile phone number on the wristbands and place them on their children. If they happen to become separated from their children during the festival then a simple phone call can be made to reunite them,” Mr Karamaloudis said.
“The wristband initiative is designed to give peace of mind to parents and guardians. It will also help festival staff and volunteers to reunite lost kids with their loved ones.
“Another useful tip for families going to the festival is to establish a safe meeting place for the family to return to should they get separated at any time during the festival.
“The wristbands are free of charge and are available from the Bendigo Visitor Centre in Pall Mall.”
