Beat the winter chill at Whitehorse’s Neighbourhood Houses

23 May 2018

A range of exciting programs are on offer at Whitehorse’s many neighbourhood houses, including a free internet kiosk for seniors operating at Burwood Neighbourhood House until 29 June.

Whitehorse Councillor Denise Massoud said the kiosk gave seniors who may not have access to the internet at home a chance to use email, pay bills online, conduct research or just get used to navigating the internet.

“This is a friendly environment in which to use the internet, and the book-and-use service is just one of the services offered by this neighbourhood house,” Cr Massoud said.

“As winter sets in, Whitehorse’s 10 neighbourhood houses are wonderful places to join an event, class, or social activity. Neighbourhood and community houses are non-profit organisations that bring people together, providing a broad range of low cost activities for everyone.

“Programs on offer at neighbourhood and community houses include ukulele, art, yoga, Latin dancing, computer skills, languages and cookery. There is also childcare on offer and social activities that bring people together to share a common interest.”
