The sociable of Yarra’s Edge

31 May 2016

The sociable of Yarra’s Edge Image

Socialising has been taken to a new level at Yarra’s Edge with the recent formation of a new social club.

The brainchild of Janine McGrath, the club itself meets every Tuesday afternoon at 2pm at Loading Dock.  But a number of “mini-clubs” have also sprouted and are spreading like wildfire throughout the precinct.

Ms McGrath explained that there were mini-clubs for: wine and cheese; books; films; TV shows; culture and walking.  There is also talk of groups for photography; cycling; fitness and cards.

With 65 names now registered, the success of the social club had exceeded expectations.

“I would have been happy with 10 people at the first meeting,” Janine said.  “Instead, 40 people came, so there is obviously a need.”

She said one of her motivations for starting the club was she knew of three lonely and isolated people.

“I thought, if I know three, there are probably more,” she said.

The dance instructor has lived in Tower 2 for the past five years and has only praise for the community feel of the area.

The club has no formal structure and no committee.
