Rowley House Opening – a Celebration

Rowley House Opening – a Celebration for the Whole Community

Tuesday 6 July 11am-2pm

The Rowley Resource Centre has moved – and the community is celebrating its new location.

The new governing board of the Rowley Resource Centre and staff, along with the Spreydon/Heathcote Community Board, invite community members to attend the opening celebration on Tuesday 6 July. It will be held at Rowley House, 59 Rowley Ave (opposite Rowley Avenue School).

Rowley Resource Centre staff identify community needs, ideas and goals, and help to find ways to meet them, working alongside individuals, schools and other organisations in the local area, with the support of local and central government bodies.

The opening will be an opportunity for the public to visit this new facility and to take part in the fun (and free) activities. Visitors can find out about the local community through information displays, and there will be an opportunity to say how you would like this family-friendly, warm and spacious facility to be used and developed in the future.

The Rowley Avenue School Culture Group will perform at 11am, followed by welcome addresses and speeches from members of the local community, Spreydon/Heathcote Community Board members, and Wigram MP Jim Anderton.

There will be a free sausage sizzle and buffet lunch available. A bouncy castle, balloons, face-painting and more will be available for children.
