Empowering Southern Highlands Communities & Thanking Our Heroes

Angels in Our Town is a cultural community event acknowledging and celebrating our first responders, volunteers and service organisations — the Angels in our Town. Held in the towns and villages of the Southern Highlands, it culminates in a 'thank you' street parade through Bowral, followed by a family concert in Corbett Gardens on 2 December.​

With drought, fires, COVID, floods, inflation and international conflict, there are a lot of negative influences in our world today.  Angels in Our Town brings an energy and palpable sense of joy, fun, connection and love throughout the community.

It will involve first responders, RFS/SES, Fire & Rescue, the NSW police, Paramedics, nurses, health workers, primary and secondary children, school teachers; service groups such as CWA, OZ Harvest, First Nations groups, performing arts groups, musicians, choirs, creative artists, horses, stilt walkers...... and YOU!

Our Goal, Vision & Commitment

The Angels in our Town don't always wear wings, but they are definitely watching over us.

Angels in Our Town
By Julie Haseler Reilly

Well Yasmine, she is a doctor
And Tarak, he’s a nurse
They worked so hard to keep us well Though out that covid curse.
The Para medic teams
That come to our rescue
Deserve a little Christmas
For all the things they do...

There are angels in our town There are angels in our town
We give them thanks at Christmas

They keep us safe and sound

There are angels in our town

There are angels in our town
Just take a look and you will see

They’re walking all around.
