Life is short, so get in amongst it and enjoy
Have you found yourself socially isolated these past few years? Need a new habit and meet new people? The Donald Simpson Community Centre, located in the heart of Cleveland in the Redlands, opened in 1987 with funds from State and Local Government and donations from the community. Its purpose is to provide a venue for social, intellectual and physical activities for the seniors and future seniors of the Redland Coast and neighbouring areas.

Currently, the centre provides over 40 activities and information programs on a weekly basis. These activities cover the areas of health, education and craft and despite Covid-19, new programs are being implemented. Chair Yoga Dance is an example of a new activity. What is Chair Yoga Dance? It is a program that offers simple, easy and fun movements that are done sitting on a chair or standing on the ground while using the chair for support. It is beneficial for people of all ages and abilities. The classes combine gentle yoga postures to improve your flexibility, concentration, balance and strength, with choreographed movements to enhance your memory and increase your positivity. For those with a little more energy, you could give the Saturday morning Zumba session a go. For a full list of this year's activities go here.

You must be a member of the Donald Simpson Centre to participate in any of these activities. Membership fees will be due for all members from 1st July. All existing members are to renew their membership for the next financial year until 30th June 2023. New members are welcome anytime.

New membership till 30th June 2022 individual – $11.00
New membership for couple till 30th June 2022– $22.00
New membership till 30 June 2023 individual – $27.50
New membership for couple till 30th June 2023– $52.00

On top of the yearly membership fee, you only pay a nominal fee for each activity in which you participate and you can be as active as you so choose. All new members are invited for a Welcome Morning Tea hosted by the CEO of the centre and you can enjoy the benefits of a professionally run cafe, a well-equipped library, and participate in free information seminars.

The centre also organises reasonably priced day trips by a coach that cover a wide range of interests, including theatre outings, river cruises, and lunches at tourist destinations.

The Donald Simpson Centre is located at 172 Bloomfield Street, Cleveland with a bus stop out the front and plentiful off-street parking. For further information contact the Centre on 07 3821 1089 or go here.
