Fun and learning on offer at your local Neighbourhood House
5 May 2016
Community centres across Kingston will be throwing out the welcome mat during Neighbourhood House Week and invite you to get involved.
Kingston boasts nine neighbourhood houses each offering a host of fun, interesting and educational classes, courses and groups for people of all ages.
Neighbourhood House Week, held from May 9–16, will celebrate your local ‘House with heart’ which are run by volunteer-based organisations and funded by Kingston Council and the Victorian Government. The theme of this year’s event is ‘Grow Together’
Kingston Mayor Tamsin Bearsley said Council was proud to support these vital organisations that help bring our community together and provide much-needed services such as English classes for new migrants. “Whether you’re interested in learning a new hobby, developing your child’s abilities or gaining valuable skills – your local neighbourhood house is ready to help,” Cr Bearsley said.
“More than 10,000 people visit a Kingston Neighbourhood House each week, why not join them to discover the many fabulous activities on offer right on your doorstep.”
Activities run by local Neighbourhood Houses include:
- the Dingley Village Neighbourhood Centre Men’s Shed program
- Cooking with Maths or Kid’s Yoga at Cheltenham Community Centre
- the community garden at Chelsea Heights Community Centre
- school holiday activities at Aspendale Gardens Community Service
- music classes for babies and parents at Mordialloc Neighbourhood House
- adult learning opportunities at Patterson Lakes Community Centre.
