PROGRAM – MARCH 2020
Welcome to the March 2020 bus program. The rain we had recently, though welcome (floods, power outages excluded!) to fill our water reservoirs, douse fires and revive our plants, caused Robert to cancel a couple of the trips. So as not to disappoint, Robert has rescheduled them for this month. Preference will be given to clients on the original list and waitlist.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: From July we will lose funding from The Department of Health and will therefore no longer be able to offer shopping on a Tuesday (still available Thursday), home visits and the monthly friendship group. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause. We are however looking at other funding options and will keep our clients informed.
Amber and volunteers are available for home visits (social and light domestic). If you would like to book please phone the office on 9427 1841.
Please note that there will be someone in our office to take your calls Monday to Friday between 9.30am and 3.30pm. If we miss your call please leave a message and a member of staff will get back to you at the end of the day.
INFORMATION FOR NEW MEMBERS – booking procedures
The way the program works is – you call the Meeting House and book the trips you wish to attend. You then call us again the day before your trip and we will give you the time Robert will pick you up. Robert will pick you up and drop you off from your home. If you have any queries please phone Jane or Trish and we can help you.
NB: NO BOOKINGS CAN BE ACCEPTED VIA EMAIL. ALL BOOKINGS TO BE MADE VIA PHONE
CROCHET/CRAFT SOCIAL GROUP
Come and join Amber and this friendly group who meet at The Meeting House Neighbourhood Centre in Stokes Street on a monthly basis. The next meeting will take place on Monday 2nd March between 10:00am – 12noon. The cost is $10 per person – Morning tea is provided together with crochet tuition and assistance with other available crafts (i.e. cross stitch, bead work). Members are required to provide their own materials & equipment. For further information please contact Amber on 9427 1841.
