Nillumbik Mayor Ben Ramcharan joined locals at Panton Hill Neighbourhood House on Tuesday for a special morning tea as part of Living & Learning Nillumbik’s Neighbourhood House week celebrations.
Songs from the Panton Hill Primary School choir were a highlight of the morning, as were the kids activities.
Melissa, Panton Hill’s wonderful horticulturalist, tutor, and community garden leader was on hand to help children from the Playhouse make seed balls to attract local birds.
This year’s Neighbourhood House Week theme is ‘locals connecting locals’, with events running across Living & Learning Nillumbik’s three Neighbourhood Houses (Diamond Creek, Eltham and Panton Hill) all week.
Neighbourhood Houses are inclusive community-based spaces welcoming people of all ages, abilities and walks of life. They provide a place for people to share, learn and make connections in the community that they might not otherwise make. There are over 400 Neighbourhood Houses in Victoria, and over 1000 Australia-wide.
