Meet Ruby - The pregnancy and post natal pampervan

Prices Variable / Gift vouchers available

Ruby will begin her maiden voyage in early 2014 as a pregnancy and post natal pampervan. My vision is to create a team of experienced and gorgeous women to deliver an extra special and professional service to women in pregnancy and the immediate post natal period. The pregnancy and post natal pampervan is a mobile service that will come to you. It will offer a variety of services from bringing a meal, putting on a load of washing or spot of cleaning while you enjoy a warm cup of tea, foot soak or maybe you'd like to have a little chat following your birth. Whatever the request, we will endeavour to meet your needs on an individual level. Stay tuned for more details to come...................


Very soon I'm excited to say Ruby will also be available for hire. Whether it be your baby shower, blessingway ceremony or themed event of your choice (kitchen teas, weddings, birthdays) contact Kellie and she will meet with you and support you in creating an event to remember.



Ruby as "The Christmas Carolvan"


Ruby the Caravan has had her name since her first owner from 1964. She was found by her new owner Kellie and Sam in September of 2012. Since then they have spent many hours making this caravan their own with lots of patience and personal touches. Kellie and Sam look forward to bringing Ruby to life with their first project being "The Christmas Carolvan"

Quirky carollers and their van of Christmas Cheer

By Hamish Brooks


In LIEU of Carols by the sea this year, which is not going ahead for the first time in 10 years, a caravan of carollers will be curb-side in Torquay and Jan Juc in early December. Organiser of the Christmas Carolvan, Lucy O'Grady said it was a quirky twist on traditional dor-to-door carolling.


"It involves our local choir, The Bonnie Upwelling, a funky renovated caravan and entire neighbourhoods connecting through music on streets in the Surf Coast.


"In the lead up to Christmas, The Bonnie Upwelling Choir will travel the streets of Jan Juc and Torquay in Christmas costumes, towing a caravan trussed up in similar attire.


"This quirky parade will stop at street corners, gather residents who have invited them there, and sing carols together".


Ms O'Grady said the idea for the project began to form a little over two years ago but went on the back burner when her daugher Eve was born.


"I was lucky enough to have Kellie (a birth attendant) at the birth of Eve and because she was there for the whole thing she soon learnt about the carolling idea.


"She's helping me to birth the project and adding gorgeous creative influences like her newly renovated funky old caravan and other creative ideas".


Ms O'Grady said The Bonnie Upwelling has been singing weekly at her home in Jan Juc for over three and a half years.


"Its a beautiful group of over 25 singers, some of whom also play musical instruments. We'll be singing some traditional carols and some not-so-traditional carols; they'll be a harp playing angel in the mix, a banjo-playing troubadour and a ukelele-strumming maestra in gold lame stockings!".


"Not to mention over 20 singers also dressed to the nines and singing in sweet four-part harmonies".




The Carolvan will be in Jan Juc on December 9 at 6.15pm at Bob Petit Reserve, Domain road side, under the trees; at 7pm at Jan Juc Park, Carnarvon Avenue; and 7.45pm in Royston Lane.


On December 10 the Carolvan will be in Torquay at 7pm at The Quay, corner of Fischer Street and Nautical Rise; and at 7.45pm it will be at the corner of Bristol Road and Geelong Road.
