 COVID-19 – Important update from Watsonia Neighbourhood House

We welcome the gradual easing of restrictions for metro Melbourne from 11:59pm on Sunday 8 November and the additional freedoms this brings for us all. There is greater certainty now about reopening in 2021.

We have made the difficult decision to continue the suspension of face-to-face groups and classes for the remainder of term 4. We are developing a new Covid safe program for next year to meet the changing needs of our community. We have some exciting programs and renovations coming up, including a fabulous garden upgrade.

In the meantime, we will stay in touch through our website (www.watsonianh.org.au) , our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/watsonianh) and regular emails or you can call us on 03 9434 6717.

We look forward to seeing you again in 2021.

  

 Travels in a Lockdown World

Our Travels in a Lockdown World project provides you with an opportunity to tell us about your favourite walk in lockdown.

Take a photograph of a favourite place on your walk and tell us about what you love about that walk – the people, the places, what you see, what you feel.

Our friendly and inclusive group meets via Zoom each fortnight. For more information about how to join in see below or download the flyer.
