Backyard Renovations

The Neighbourhood Centre is very excited to announce that work is underway for our Backyard Renovation!!

It will be a complete overhaul of the back of the centre, with a larger pergola and paved area, raised garden beds and a BBQ area.

This will be a great space for the many groups that we have coming to The Neighbourhood Centre, including “D-Caf” (for people with dementia and their carers), MenConnect, AA and the Multicultural Women’s Group – and will be fantastic for events that we hold such as International Volunteer Day and “Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea”. In the future it will be lovely for a Chair Yoga Class, Preschool Groups and School Holiday Workshops!

So, you can see why we’re excited!

To enable us to create this great space for our community, we need you!! Volunteers are needed to help us in a variety of ways over the next month. If you’re not able to help with the labour intensive work, we’d love people to help with the Morning Teas and lunches!! I’ll list below a few of the key dates, and if you can make it along to any of the days, that would be fantastic!

Please RSVP by giving us a call on 6332 4866 to let me know what days / dates that you could be free to help out – we’d really appreciate it! We’ll provide morning tea and on the bigger days, we’ll provide a BBQ lunch.

Thank you!!
