Well after a very busy month, we are nally in our new premises at Suite 2, 155 Hugh Street in Currajong. There has been a problem getting our phones connected and they will not be fully functioning until the 23 May, so if you are phoning the o ce please be aware that we can only divert to one mobile phone and if that is busy, it will go to message bank. Please leave a message and we will get back to you.
Our opening will be on the 18th May in conjunction with your monthly outing. The o ce will be opened by Cathy O’Toole MP, the Member for Herbert and we are hoping to see you all there.
We have a large room that we are going to use for the wellness program, currently we are having Yoga, Colouring and Gentle Exercises. We would love to have something for you to enjoy every day so please provide some suggestions for group activities and we will do our best to introduce.
