The Neighbourhood Centre has under 20 staff members, but close to 100 volunteers. The Centre wouldn’t be what it is without all of our wonderful volunteers. Thank you all very much for everything you do.

Backyard Renovations.

We would like to give a MASSIVE thank you to all the volunteer working bee’s that have helped renovate The Neighbourhood Centre’s backyard. This will soon 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.

We would like to give a HUGE thank you to:

– Rotary Club of Bathurst
– Hothams – Sand, Soil, Gravel & Mulch in Bathurst
– MacKillop College – Bathurst
– Petries Mitre 10
– The Truss and Frame Factory
– Bunnings Warehouse – Bathurst
& The Neighbourhood Centre’s Volunteers.
