The Outdoor Reading Room on Parklawn Place North St Marys has had its second last Corporate Volunteer Blitz day from United Way Australia with a 40+ team from ING Direct.  A second coat of paint was put onto the mural wall, a noticeboard to promote community events installed, bench seats for people to sit and read books from the Little Free Community Library, wicker style planter boxes complete with beautiful herbs and lavender, a passionate fruit vine and trellis, as well as a first coat of the outdoor movie screen.

Over the coming months United Way will hand this project over to our community to continue to grow and develop the site.  Many thanks to partners involved in their own way in bringing this project to fruition - United Way Australia, Shared reading NSW, Paint Penrith REaD and Magnetic Places Penrith City Council.

The Outdoor Reading Room is evolving into a wonderful welcoming community space.

February is upon us and the team are back from leave.
We have some great new programs beginning at Colyton Neighbourhood Centre, Cnr Willoughby and Jensen Sts Colyton.  For more information you can contact TeRina 9188 9065.

Colyton Kids is a fun after school program for children aged 8 - 12 years, providing outdoor physical activities as well as afternoon tea from 3.15 - 4.45pm every Wednesday during Term 1.  Cost is $3.00

Our Gentle Exercise class is designed specifically for people over 40 and is run by a qualified facilitator every Monday 11.30am - 12.30pm.  Cost:  $5.00






Community Junction Inc Werrington, are branching out of the office and over to Arthur Neave Memorial Hall.

During the first weeks in February we offered 2 weeks of afternoon fun to the local community with one off exciting activities.  There was something for everyone from sensory play, drama and cartooning workshops, as well as fun activities for youth and getting our hands dirty with slime!

 We also had the opportunity to attend Thorndale‘s “Give it a Go” fun day on Saturday 6th February.
We were able to network and promote the programs that we offer to the local community and had the advantage of being the only neighbourhood centre with a stall.  Thank you to Thorndale for a fun and informative day!
