And we’d like to have a local band, so please get in touch with expressions of interest. If you have a band, or if you’d like to volunteer for the planning group, please email community@cch.org.au or phone 5472 4842.




Community lunch: back at the Town Hall

Community lunch signWe are back at the Town  Hall in Frederick Street with our usual Tuesday lunch of two delicious courses. Join the queue at 12.30pm. All are welcome; it’s a great chance to meet other community members. Over 100 people came last week – so we really need some new volunteers to help with the preparation. It’s a friendly morning in the kitchen, followed by a delicious (free) lunch for volunteers. We ask everyone else to donate $5 which covers our costs.  If you’d like to volunteer, please let us know you’re coming by contacting community@cch.org.au or phone 5472 4842.





Our autumn program

autumn program cover

Our autumn program is still available. Pick up a copy from the Community House or the library.

We had a very successful workshop on using and maintaining a chainsaw. We’ll run it again in October, before the fire season – send your expressions of interest to reception@cch.org.au. Coming soon is a chance to make your own hair care products. Details of our choirs and other activities and courses are also in the printed program.

You can download a pdf copy of our autumn program here. Meanwhile our team of staff and volunteers is busily thinking about next term’s program. If you’ve got a course you’d like to run, or something you think we should be organising, please get in touch. Phone 5472 4842 or email: reception@cch.org.au
