Neighbourhood volunteers

Docklands’ pop-up Neighbourhood House has started the new year with momentum, receiving so much interest from volunteers, staff can’t quite keep up.

Docklands News reported on the opening of the pop-up last year and the need for volunteers to join the project.

Community development worker Carolynne Venn said the pop-up had enjoyed a great start to the year.

“We have been fortunate to already have 12 wonderful volunteers and we’re starting to plan for the year,” she said.

“Some of our main activities will be a Hindu event during Cultural Diversity Week, an event for International Women’s Day, regular games sessions, morning teas and classes.”

“If anyone has a skill they would like to share then we would love to hear from them. We are open to all ideas.”

Ms Venn said the volunteers who had joined the pop-up had already started to create a sense of community.

“Volunteers from different backgrounds and demographics are connecting with each other. All of them were strangers when they walked in here, but now I see them laughing together and having a great time,” she said.
