Hi All,

We've recently accumulated a collection of cloth pocket nappies and inserts.  We don't need all of them and I'm looking to give away the extras.   All are second-hand but in very good condition. They are a mix of small/newborn sizes and one-size, mostly snap closures, with a few velcro. I haven't used any of them and my understanding is that most were only very lightly used.

I have 28 available in total:

21 Babyland nappies:
4 apple green, 3 bright yellow, 4 orange, 2 lilac, 3 light pink,1 bubblegum pink, 2 light blue, 2 red 

4 Green Kids (all newborn/small) nappies:
2 green, 1 red, 1 turquoise 

1 red Pea Pod nappy
1 pink Rainbow BB nappy

If you would like some or all of them please text me (no calls please) at 0422 262 775.

House Sitters


Anyone looking for lovely house-sitters over Xmas period?  Your house will be cared for and returned in the same condition you left it in! I have family coming from interstate who would love to have a home nearby to stay in (as ours is too small to fit everyone).  We are in Coburg North, anything close by from Xmas Eve to around the 2nd of January would be much appreciated.  Please contact me for any details. 
Thank you and warmest regards,

Thank You


Hi to the Newlands Community.
A big thank you to everyone who has donated items to the asylum seeker family who had their payments stopped by the Immigration Department.
The family is extremely grateful to everyone for their generosity and kindness.
The Immigration Department has reinstated the families payments so their immediate crises is over.
The response has been extraordinary so a big thank you from myself and everyone at the community centre for your support.
Jenny Rayner.

Clothes Swap


Hi Folks.

Our next Clothes Swap is scheduled for Sunday August 2.

Beginning at 2.00 at our usual place in Cox Reserve (corner of Elizabeth and Claremont St's).

If it rains we should be able to use the community house.

Bring along anything (not just clothes) you no longer need and swap it for something more useful.

It costs $5.00 per family to join in and you can take as much home as you like.

The proceeds of this swap are going to pay for the VCE class at Sydney Road Community School to see Bob Brown speak at a global politics lecture.

Hope to see you there!
