Retirement is for those who don’t have time to work
The Donald Simpson Community Centre opened over thirty years ago as a facility for the mature aged community members of the Redlands area on the southern end of Brisbane's Moreton Bay.
It was developed to benefit the elderly and those close to retirement age by providing activity and information programs at a nominal fee. Currently, the centre is running programs in health, education as well as social activities. These days, there is no excuse to sit at home twiddling your thumbs wondering how to fill in the hours.
Some exciting new activities led by experienced tutor have been added for the New Year including:
• Qi Gong - Classes commencing from 23rd January Wednesday, 12.30pm to 1.30pm and will be only $5.00. Classes will be held weekly.
• DSC Writers Group - Learn or expand your writing skills, interact with other writers, enhance your skills to partake in writing competitions and much more. Will be meeting 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month starting from 22nd January. Cost $10.00 per class
