Community

Our community activities are focused on areas of need not fully met by other groups and where we believe we have the resources to make a difference.

Our local population has above average numbers of retirees and young families. We also have above average numbers of both high and low income earners.

Generally our community activities are run under the supervision of qualified people assisted by a team of volunteers. Volunteers who work with children are required by law to undergo a police check.
