Residents and police come together at Emora Park | Photos

A few souls braved the cold on Thursday, May 17, to enjoy Bowenfel’s monthly barbecue at Emora Park. 

The barbecue has been held on the third Thursday of every month for the past three years and brings together residents, police and local family and community services. 

The project was the brainchild of Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District Aboriginal health liaison officer Sonia Cox, and usually attracts around 60 people each month. 

The chilly temperature on Thursday night may have discouraged a crowd but a handful of people still enjoyed the barbecue, provided by the Volunteers Rescue Association. 

Lithgow’s head chief of police, Inspector Chris Sammut, and Bathurst’s Aboriginal community and liaison officer Percy Raveneau were in attendance.
