The Team from Office for Seniors

Today is the International Day of Older Persons! It's an important day for everyone to recognize and say thank you to older people for their amazing contributions to the world, from mentoring and volunteering, to sharing experience, being in paid work and much more.

To acknowledge the occasion, we have just released our October SuperSeniors Newsletter, you can read it here: bit.ly...

Way Back Wednesday

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Hey Neighbourly folk, can you work out who this is and where the picture was taken. The only hint I will give is that it was 1909.

Johnsonville Playcentre is available to hire!

Miyoko from Johnsonville

Hi everyone!

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 hire.jvpc@gmail.com.
