Waterloo Community Centre update

WATERLOO: The newly refurbished Waterloo Community Centre located at the corner of Cope and Phillip streets, reopened in August with a fresh initiative for providing local residents with a coordinated range of activities, programs and referral services. The Centre is open between Monday and Friday each week Reports Reece Meredith in the October 2011 issues of the South Sydney Herald.

A new garden project, named S.A.V.E, is planned in the Market Stall area where people flock on Fridays, as well as space for the rooftop garden. Here locals can help develop and share transferable skills in creating their own home deck gardens and learn sustainability principles and practices.

Trial Cooking Classes began on Monday mornings in September, as well as the regular Financial Planning counselling services with the Salvation Army’s MoneyCare outreach program. An Alcoholics Anonymous group meets on Tuesdays, and on Thursdays there’s a $6.50 Big Breakfast!

Music lessons are available and a Card-making Club, with a resident artist, happens on Wednesdays. English Language Conversational support classes also form part of these new initiatives enabling local residents of all abilities and ages to gain extra help in job seeking, resume preparation plus Internet and computer skills.


Kids Drama Club afternoon classes occur from 3.30-4.30pm daily and artist’s spaces can be rented for creative projects. Just drop by during the day when it suits you and chat with the many friendly volunteers, or the resident caseworker Jo (96983586), or the program coordinator Lauren (0478 302 429).
