The community gathered in the Shire of Narrogin’s Library sensory garden last Thursday for Diversi-tea — a morning tea to celebrate International Day of People with Disability.

Guests enjoyed musical entertainment by Cherie Dawson, who shared her experiences of living with mental illness and how inclusivity could be improved in our communities.

Guests also met participants from Accessability’s Community Connection program, which encourages its members to stay connected and engaged. International Day of People with Disability is a United Nations- sanctioned day celebrated each year on December 3.
