You might not even know it’s there, but if you go down a jacaranda lined driveway on Village Way, Oxenford you will find a warm and friendly community hub. Studio Village Community Centre has been running for over 20 years and is truly a place where everyone will find a welcome and something to interest them.
Run by a dedicated team of volunteers and social workers, there are a wide variety of programs in place for the community. Weekly playgroups, a youth focused program on how to be job ready, tai chi and yoga classes, community gardens, cheap food boxes to assist people who are struggling, parenting courses and more.
Melissa, a social worker at the community centre, says what she loves about the place is the way people from all walks of life come together at the centre, that no matter what you’re looking for it’s always welcoming, you’ll always get a chat, everyone is really friendly and there to help.
For more information about the great range of services and events they run, see their facebook page for all the latest news. https://www.facebook.com/studiovillage/
