Lower Mountains Neighbourhood Centre (LMNC) opened early to serve breakfast to its local community on August 8.
“This is an important new strategy to connect with and welcome to the neighbourhood centre, people who don’t normally access the service. We want to hear more of what people want happening in this part of the mountain,” said Christopher Smith, LMNC community development worker.
“There was lots of wonderful feedback from all who attended the first event and a solid commitment to spread the word, so others who were not aware of LMNC can learn more about their local neighbourhood centre.”
Federal Member for Macquarie Susan Templeman attended the breakfast event and presented an Aboriginal flag to the centre, as well as spending time talking with local residents.
“We are very grateful to Susan for coming to the centre so early and presenting us with the Aboriginal flag. Lower Mountains Neighbourhood Centre believe that the Aboriginal flag is an important symbol of cultural respect. We are committed to promoting a welcoming environment to all who live in the Lower Mountains,” said Tracey Willow, acting manager.
The community pancake morning will be a regular event – second Wednesday of every month from 7.30–9am. Everyone is welcome.
