Free activities from Our Home Our Streets
Local residents are invited to register now to take part in free activity sessions being held at the Spalding Community Centre as part of Our Home Our Streets.
Our Home Our Streets is a community project being piloted in Spalding. The project aims to connect, support and empower neighbourhood communities and improve the health and wellbeing of local residents. The City recognises that there are pressing social issues in Spalding and is taking action.
City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Ian Carpenter said the activities were quick wins resulting from initial community consultation.
“In May the City, in collaboration with the Department of Housing, WA Police, Department of Aboriginal Affairs, Bundiyarra Aboriginal Community Aboriginal Corporation, and the WA Centre for Rural Health, held a community event at the Spalding Community Centre,” the Mayor explained.
“As a result of community consultation at the event the City has decided to host a 10 week program of activities at the centre.”
“The program contains activities for young people including a community art project and hip hop classes as well as a seniors program of activities.”
The free sessions will commence in the week starting 20 July 2015. To attend sessions people are asked to register online.
All activities will be held at the Spalding Community Centre in Mitchell Street and run for 10 weeks.
Places are limited and people are asked to register their interest as soon as possible. Preference is given to those who reside in Spalding.
