Village Green

This may appear to be a rather plain sign.
But not many areas in Australia display the British term "Village Green".
This is a community area.
In the summer, there are circuses and rides.
On Australia Day, on 26th January each year,
this area comes alive with a community breakfast - free - + family entertainment.
It is also the end of the popular Australia Day early morning bike ride from Safety Beach to Rosebud.
And every Sunday, the Rosebud Lions Club hosts a market.
All this is right by the scenic shores of Port Phillip Bay.

Seashore gathering
Taking time just to have fun
A village green charm

We never use that term green here in Canada either but it is useful for describing those kind of areas such as I have seen in Britain.

We don't use that term in Canada, either.
I also think Rosebud sounds an odd name for place, but I guess you get used to it and it doesn't sound so strange to your ears anymore!

The sign does appear a bit plain, but it sounds like there's lots of fun and excitement behind it. :)

Hi there - all it needs (assuming it does not have one already) is a midsummer cricket match in the long end of a summer day. Then it really will be an import from England!

Nice picture.

I agree Gemma. Most suburbs here in Perth have a green space, a park..but how much more appealing it would be if they were called for instance 'Kingsley Green' I like it!!
