The screening of the international hit documentary "Babies" was a packed house... so much so that the Odeon 5 had to screen it simultaneously in 2 cinemas to accomodate everyone. The movie is hilarious and if you're not feeling clucky before hand... you certainly will be after!! It's also really interesting to see the different parenting styles around the world and the soundtrack complimented the images just beautifully. All the babies started their lives being breastfed but towards the end the only toddler we saw being breastfed was in Namibia. That doesn't mean to say the others weren't... perhaps it just wasn't shown and the Namibian woman's breasts were available to her babies & toddlers 24/7.
There were various displays around town... a banner across the council chambers, a book display in the library, our "Talk to Me" stand in the Orange City Centre and a display window in Myers.
There was also great coverage with numerous stories in both the local newspapers. This was just one story....
Overall the vibe was positive.
