Chelsea Heights Community Centre

Mr RICHARDSON (Mordialloc) — Over the weekend I stopped by the Chelsea Heights Community Centre open day, which showcased the services and programs on offer. The open day was action-packed with kinder programs, fitness and dancing classes, cooking demonstrations and sporting activities, along with displays and stalls.

I congratulate coordinators Christine Rolfe and Lorraine Bradford, along with program coordinator Lynne Pocknee. A highlight of the day was the healthy eating demonstration by Maddie Race, which stressed the importance of healthy eating and living. While the smoothies were a bit of a culture shock for me, the pesto pasta and sausage rolls were an absolute hit. It was also good to catch up with the centre’s recently retired coordinator, Janene Fussell, who managed the centre for 25 years. She has left the community centre with a strong culture and foundation for years to come.
