Many people, children and adults alike, love the Bug Club that has been running at the Centre during the Springwood Growers Market. As many of you know, the fabulous lady who runs it is temporarily in New Zealand. She’ll be back in April to continue Bug Club.
In the meantime, we are running other things in it’s place. This coming Sunday (22nd of October) and the fourth Sunday of November (26th of November), we will be running a Fossil Fun club for kids and adults.
During the Growers Market, a local Paleontologist will be exploring the world of fossils for all interested.
Come along, and join us for Fossil Fun!
The Springwood Neighbourhood Centre is supports the ‘Yes’ campaign, and equal rights for all.
We are running a Love Tree in the Centre, and are inviting everyone to come in and place a heart warming or encouraging message on the Tree.

See the flyer for more details!
The AIDER (Assist Infirm, Disabled and Elderly Residents) program is a free, one-off service which supports some of our most at-risk community members, to help them get their homes bush-fire ready.
The program helps people live more safely and confidently in their home in areas where bush fires may start.
The AIDER program is designed for people who have limited domestic support available from family, relatives, friends or other services. This could include older people, people living with a disability, and people who are already receiving community assistance and services. Their property must also be on bush fire prone land (land that can support a bush fire or be subject to bush fire attack).
AIDER services can include:
thinning vegetation around the home
removing leaf and tree debris
trimming branches from close to the home
mowing or slashing long grass.
If you would like to know more about the free, one-off AIDER service, call 02 8741 4955 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
