By Community Services, NewsNo Comments

Orange City Council will hold an open day at the Community Services Centre, Giyalang Ganya, on Friday 12 May to celebrate Neighbourhood Centre Week.

Members of the public are invited to meet the team and discover the range of community services available such as aged care, disability support, youth services, road safety, migrant support, community development and children’s services.

Orange City Council’s Services Policy Committee Chair, Cr Mel McDonell encouraged everyone to come along and find out more about the community services Council offers.

“Many residents might not be aware of the wide range of community services Orange City Council provides and this is a great opportunity to come down, meet the team and find out more about the support you can receive,” Cr McDonell said.

Visitors to the open day can browse information stands about each service, win a prize in a game of bingo and enjoy a free barbecue, snacks, tea and coffee.

The RUOK Conversation Convoy will also be there providing resources to help locals support each other, as well as asking people what else they can do to support rural and regional communities through tough times.

The Open Day will be held from 10.30am to 12.30pm at the Community Services Centre, Giyalang Ganya, 286 Lords Place.

Neighbourhood Centre Week is held across Australia each year to celebrate the role of neighbourhood centres in our community. This year’s theme is Locals Connecting Locals.
