Are you looking for a place to hold your child’s birthday party?
Johnsonville Playcentre is available for hire!
We are an early childhood centre, and our facilities are available to hire during weekends and school holidays (although there will be reduced availability over Christmas).
We have a fantastic outdoor area that includes a fort, a bike track, two sandpits, two slides, a big deck with café blinds that can be rolled down in bad weather and swings.
We have a full kitchen and kids’ tables and chairs. Inside we have toys galore, including cars, trains, blocks, dress ups, a big doll’s house, puzzles and picture books. Lots of space and lots of fun!
As a non-Playcentre member you can hire our centre for up to 4 hours for $85 (and it's $25/hour after that) plus a $35 cleaning fee. We will also require $100 bond, which will be returned to you after the party.
Please note we are egg and nut free (eggs in cakes are fine).
If you are interested in finding out more, or booking your next birthday party at our centre, please email email@example.com.
Now that summer's finally here and the holidays are just around the corner for many, we'd love to hear about your favourite summer holiday memories. Has there been a trip that you continue to think about years later? Where did you go, with who and what did you get up to? What made it such a stand-out experience? As usual, please put 'NFP' in your comment if you don't want it included in a travel article. Cheers.
As the Government moves to double employees' sick leave entitlements, a man is calling for a law change to go even further – and allow workers to take a paid day off on their birthday.
When Clifford Hallett blows out the candles on his cake in a couple of weeks, he'll likely wish for an extra leave day to celebrate.
Hallett has launched a petition to Parliament requesting it pass legislation to give all employees that right.
Tell us what you think.
Please put NFP if you do not want your comments used by STUFF.
