Opportunities To Connect – Melbourne’s Outer Suburbs
Australians who choose to build in our city’s outer suburbs will soon discover that there are many wonderful social activities to take part in all year round. The local library is the perfect place to grab the latest bestseller or to try something new. There are also plenty of social clubs, community events and celebrations to attend in your local area and you can always find what’s on in your postcode with the help of your local council’s website. Today, Aston Homes talk you through some of these great opportunities to connect. Enjoy!
Your local library is a real hub of activity for those who like reading or to try something new! Melbourne’s libraries have a multitude of resources and clubs dedicated to community members of all ages. For our Northside bookworms, there are four library locations in the City of Whittlesea – Lalor, Mill Park, Thomastown and Whittlesea. Plus, a mobile library visits three extra sites within the municipality regularly. For our Westies there are even more locations to choose from! The Wyndham City Libraries are located in Werribee, Werribee Plaza, Point Cook, Tarneit and Wyndham Vale. Whether you’re into book clubs, kid’s clubs or crafternoons – your local library offers wonderful opportunities to connect!
Social clubs are all about friendship, fellowship and fun, which is perfect for new community members. The basic purpose of these clubs is to provide regular opportunities for members to expand their interests, keep active and to enjoy meeting new friends. Whether you’re into Arts and Culture, Sport and Recreation or Science and Technology, there’s a social club to suit. Find some great options here.
As well as social club events, there are also plenty of community events and celebrations to attend in your local area. Enjoy a day out at Mernda’s Community Fair, South Morang’s Art in the Park, Point Cook’s Moonlight Cinema. You can always find what’s on in your postcode with the help of your local council’s website.
Community Support Organisations
Volunteering is a great way to meet new people and make a difference in your communities. The Australian Red Cross, The Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul Society and Brotherhood of Saint Laurence are just a few of the local community support organisations that would highly appreciate your time and skills. Whether you’re interested in tutoring high school children, visiting older people in the community, gardening, sorting clothing donations, or working in an emergency services volunteer team – there’s sure to be a role perfect for you at one of these important organisations.
