NAIDOC Week and July Program from Dereel Community Wellbeing Officer

Fiona Robson has commenced her role as Dereel’s Community Wellbeing Officer. Here is a note from Fiona to the community:

Congratulations on the move across to the renovated community centre on Saturday. The Centre is looking amazing and ready to be used.

I have been asked about what happens now and have created a program of activities for July.

The first session  is in Diabetes Week. A diabetes educator will speak on Tuesday morning, 5 July, from 9.30am. Please come along and bring friends and family.

I am interested in your thoughts and ideas for Dereel. I will be setting up an office in the Soldiers Memorial Hall and plan to be at the Community Centre on Mondays and Tuesdays.
I look forward to working with you and getting to know the community better.

Tuesday 5th July at 9.30am
Understanding Diabetes (Diabetes Week)
