What's On and What We Are Working On (updated 21 / 10 / 22) :
HCA Community Focus Friday / Storm Stories sessions
These weekly sessions are now back at Olinda Community House on Friday's from 10.30am - 12.00.
Everyone is welcome to join us for a catch up with hot drinks and cakes.
St Michaels Church Hall is still open on Tuesdays and help yourself to groceries - every Tuesday from 1.00 - 4.00pm
'Community Focus Fridays' is a community led initiative, initially called ’Storm Stories’, which has provided opportunities for folks affected by the June 2021 storm, to chat with friends over a cuppa and to tell their stories of the storm and the challenges they may still have.
These weekly sessions started running at Olinda Community House on Friday's in April 2022, occasionally we move to Zoom if these are issues.
It has been suggested that to heal from trauma we need to tell our stories
over and over again to help us process and understand what happened and
move on ... and its also moving on to support the people who are still facing the challenges of rebuilding, moving on or coping with impact that Covid has had - this is a way to link with others and get some support.
Also each week we have invited people who have been helping us after the storm, as well as local organisations / individuals with stories to tell.
