I'm a freelance writer just returned to Tassie from 8 years on the mainland. I've been writing honestly about personal experiences since school and now I'm sharing my experiences, opinions, passions and wicked sense of humour with the world.

Salvation Army is dedicated to transforming lives
Since the first Salvation Army meeting in 1880, it has been working hard to provide support for those experiencing difficulties and hardships. Down at Carlton, the community spirit is alive and well with the Salvation Army offering a lot of free events for the whole family.
Join them on Sundays for breakfast! Head down to the markets once a month. Take the family down for Movie Night on the third Friday of every month. In case of an emergency, drop by on Mondays and Thursdays for some relief. Join the Companions Club for the over 40s on a Tuesday. Or simply call in for a coffee and chat Tuesday afternoon.
Sunday 9:30-11am The Salvation Army invites the community to come along to Carlton and get amongst the locals. Treat yourself to a range of options including Big Breakfast, home-cooked muesli, garlic mushrooms, waffles and so much more! People are invited to make a good coin donation for those who can afford it. The kids will be set with activities provided so you can just kick back and enjoy yourself with some music.
