FOR those itching to get out and socialise with like-minded people, there is currently lots happening over at South Shepparton Community Centre.

Every Monday from 1pm until 3pm, ‘Learn to Sew’ participants will learn the basic skills required in sewing, taking up hems or making a garment, it is up to you.

Playgroup sessions are on Tuesday’s 1pm to 3pm and cost only $10 for two-hour sessions. These are very popular so be sure to book ahead.

There are also weekly Australian Citizenship Practice sessions, to help you learn the citizenship content and get prepared for the national test. This course runs weekly every Wednesday from 11am until 12pm.

New to the calendar is a no-obligation Men’s Group, encouraging men of all ages who like to get out for social interaction to come down for a friendly chat, cuppa and no pressure environment to get to know each other.

All of the other usual services offered are still available, including job skills and technology courses, help with English language, arts and crafts, music, fitness, social and support groups, as well as a host of other activities and courses.

South Shepparton Community Centre manager, Dawn Taylor said, “We are excited to add a new Monthly Mysteries session to our calendar. Participants can sign up by giving their email and each month there will be a mystery activity.

“Events such as sing-a-longs, guest speakers, workshops and information sessions will be available, so sign up to uncover the monthly mystery!”
