District residents are urged to come to Camp St, Heathcote, behind the RSL, from 10am to 2pm and find out what groups are active in Heathcote.
Heathcote Community House will be open and co-ordinator Vicki Forde said it was a chance for people to see what it had to offer.
‘‘We’ll have members of our food swap group and garden/maintenance crew on hand to work with other interested members of the community to build some vegie and herb garden beds and other projects around the community house,’’ she said.
‘‘The youth table will include a chance to join the youth group and contribute to the name and logo of the group and to take part in a three-panel graffiti painting which will be exhibited as part of a community house ‘splash painting’ project currently under way, where we have different groups painting and exhibiting on the walls at the community house.
‘‘There will also be a large canvas for people to paint on the day, not connected with the youth and graffiti painting.
‘‘The fire safety presentation from 10.30am to 11.30am will give practical tips, hints and ideas for forming your fire plan, updating or gathering some new or extra knowledge about fires and how they can act.
Ms Forde said the community house’s emergency management website would be launched at the event.
‘‘After a free lunch between noon and 1pm we will shift the focus and launch our cybersafety website which will also include some free giveaways for those in attendance from 1.15pm to 1.45pm,’’ she said.
‘‘Also come and register your interest for any other new programs, workshops, courses and activities including: men’s shed programs, clay tile making, scale model club, computer courses, mosaics, internet writing and photography with ABC Open, and many others.’’
