Be part of Inclusion Day

THE Murwillumbah and Pottsville neighbourhood and community centres are preparing to celebrate Social Inclusion Day tomorrow with a range of activities aimed at getting residents, various volunteers and workers for service organisations together for a feed and fun time.

The celebrations are part of National Social Inclusion week begun last year by Dr Jonathon Welch, known for his work with the Choir of Hard Knocks.

A spokesperson for celebrations at the centres across the Northern Rivers Nat Meyer said the public was being invited along to “plant” symbolic pictures of a house with a heart in it, along with their written thoughts on what social inclusion meant to them.

At Murwillumbah a barbecue lunch and “house-planting” is planned from 11.30 am at Murwillumbah Community Centre in Knox Park.

At Pottsville from 10.30am until noon the Pottsville Beach Neighbourhood Centre, in the Ebb Tide building in Elizabeth Street, will open its doors to community members of all ages with morning tea, “house-planting”, and a neighbourhood centre open house showcasing its activities.
