Good vibes for Pt. Danger

MOTHER Nature turned it on for the inaugural Vibe on the Hill at Point Danger yesterday.

Any fears that organisers Steve and Donna Archdeacon had about weather hampering their plans for the Point Danger VMR fundraiser were quickly put to rest. Visitors were greeted by a beautiful sunny day, blue skies and turquoise waters shining from the Pacific Ocean.

The event was also a chance to showcase local musicians and artists at the Archdeacons' Cafe Dbar, which donated all coffee and tea sales yesterday to the VMR.

“It is exactly what we intended it to be, a good vibe,” Mr Archdeacon said. “To get this sort of weather after all the rain we had is an absolute Godsend for us today.”

“There are clear skies and it is good to see young people sitting around on the grass like they used to do. It is not concrete, it is grass and good vibes.”

“We will probably get about 5000 people come and go throughout the day, which will be a fantastic effort.”

“I will be happy if we could raise somewhere between $3000 and $5000. But it is more of an awareness thing for the VMR and the great work they do.”

There were Aboriginal dancers and artists, along with singers, the Cafe Dbar surf team making popcorn and fairy floss, plus a rescue demonstration by Point Danger VMR.

“We have got an enormous amount of local talent which is actually not usually showcased. It is a great way to give back to the artists, who have donated their time for nothing,” Mr Archdeacon said.
