I love life and enjoy it to the max, especially getting out and about, writing, taking zany art photos and playing my mandolin.
Fun and games in the neighbourhood
Learn mini-bridge, play chess or numero or just have a cuppa and a chat

If you are interested in meeting new people for a games afternoon with some tasty afternoon tea, this event is for you. The community gardeners from the Belmont Growers Inc welcomes you to the Meeting Room 4 in the Recreation Centre, Rivervale on Monday afternoon, April 30th from 1.00 pm until 2.45 pm.

Get-Together at Recreation Centre in Rivervale
All welcome to the Rivervale Recreation Centre on corner of Surrey and Francisco Streets

As well as a cuppa and refreshments, there will be people on hand to teach you how to play Mini-Bridge, which is a really easy fun way to socialise and give the brain a bit of gentle exercise. Mini bridge is bridge without the bidding and takes only twenty minutes to learn. If bridge is something you would like to learn later, mini-bridge is a wonderfully easy way to start. All equipment provided.

There will be other games such as Scrabble, Chess or Numero for you to have a go at or you may just like to have a chat with new friends.

You will be able to wander around the garden beds and see the results of a community effort over the last year to establish a space, where people can come and enjoy the park as well as providing access to fresh herbs and vegetables. This is especially important for suburbs close to the city, where often apartment dwellers rarely get the chance to dabble in the garden and get up close and personal to veggies without pesticides and fertilisers. Horticulturalist, Sandra Maynard, the Chairperson of the community garden, ensures that the soil is packed with all the goodness for a growth. Members are on a roster every blue moon to water, but come along to meet others once a month and join in the communal re-dig and planting twice a year.

You may like to sit a while on the new park bench under the trees which have been given a new look with their bright, zany knitted attire. Keep the date free and come along and be in it! Organisers are planning to hold similar events if there are enough takers, so come by yourself or come with a friend or two and share your ideas, your interests or even your recipes.

If you would like to join the garden community, there will be forms available on the day. Membership is $20 per year for Adults and $10 for Concession holders.
