Okines Community House July 2020

Staff and volunteers have been busy preparing to welcome back the community to the Okines space. Along with the essential services such as food assistance, No Interest Loans (NILS)  and access to computers and printing facilities which have been maintained over the past few months of Covid-19, Okines will now be hosting activities such as the craft club, painting group, choir, Eating with Friends and dance movement therapy sessions.  Okines Community House also has a counsellor on staff on Mondays for over the phone and face to face sessions at no cost.

We are also very pleased to be commencing monthly dinner & speaker evenings aptly named “Food for Thought”, which are commencing on Friday evening September 4, 2020 followed by one on October 2, 2020. Another great addition to Okines is our “Cuppa with a Cop” afternoon on Tuesday 11 August 2020, so if you are interested in promoting harmony and community spirit in our community and want to find out more about the Southern Beaches Neighbourhood Watch please come along.

The Okines Newsletter for Term Three 2020 is now available packed full of information about what has been happening around the house.  If you would like to be on the newsletter emailing list please let us know via otherwise you can enjoy reading a copy here.
