Celebrations for the City of Rockingham Autumn Centre’s 25th Anniversary

There will be celebrations for the City of Rockingham Autumn Centre’s 25th anniversary on October 24.

The Autumn Centre offers an active and social environment for people over the age of 50 to pursue personal interests and create support networks. It is also open to people with disability over the age of 18 accompanied by a carer.

There will be free have-a-go activities, information stalls, arts and crafts and a big morning tea for the anniversary event.

Mayor Barry Sammels said since opening in 1993, the City of Rockingham Autumn Centre had consistently been a focal point for community activity.

“While the City may have changed a lot since the mid-1990s, I’m delighted to see that the Autumn Centre remains as popular as ever in 2018,” he said.

“The continued success of the Autumn Centre is a testament to the members who make it such a fantastic place, and the City staff who continually strive to provide an engaging and welcoming place for them to visit.”

The Centre presents a comprehensive range of activities and events year round, including dance and fitness classes, arts and crafts, games and support groups, excursions, and services including podiatry and hairdressing.

The Autumn Centre is on McNicholl Street in Rockingham, next to City Park and is open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 4.30pm.
