Come along to the Docklands Social Club

02 Oct 2014

Docklanders are invited to come along to a new monthly event to meet each other in a relaxed and social environment.

Docklands News publisher Shane Scanlan is organising the events on the second Wednesday evening of every month.

“We’re calling it the Docklands Social Club because it’s the social interaction that has been missing for many years now in Docklands,” Mr Scanlan said.

“The Docklands Social Club isn’t a club as such, it’s just a name for a monthly event at the different restaurant or pub in the suburb.”

“There is no membership, no entity or hierarchy,” he said. “And there is only one rule – that all the local political baggage gets left at the door.”

Mr Scanlan said it appeared the Docklands Community Association (DCA) was largely focused on political representation.

“I’m not saying that there is not a role for political representation, but many good people have dropped out along the way because they were primarily interested in getting together socially,” Mr Scanlan said.

“The Docklands Social Club will hopefully bring everyone together to have fun and also get to know a different part of Docklands every month.”

The first Docklands Social Club is at 7pm at Watermark (Victoria Harbour Promenade) on Wednesday, October 8.

Guests will pay their own way directly with the venue.

“It will be possible to have a meal, have a few drinks or just turn up for a chat,” Mr Scanlan said.  “All we are doing is selecting a venue and publicising the event.”

Docklands News will publish photos from the event and our Facebook http://www.facebook.com/pages/Docklands-News/304870494656 page will be the online social contact point.
