Group Activities

Geeveston Community Centre Inc. (including Scrubby Hill Farm) is disappointed to be postponing all group activities. This will include the School Holiday Programme, group activities, workshops and programmes scheduled for January and February. We plan to return with a healthy calendar of activities in March, this of course will depend on public health advice.

Geeveston Community Centre remains open for daily access, individual appointments and referral to support services.

Scrubby Hill Farm will be closed to the general public until the end of February. If you would like to receive information about the Veg Box project kicking off next week, please email scrubbyhillhub@geevestoncommunitycentre.com to receive updates.

Our continuing goal is to put the safety of our community first. We’re all in this together. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this challenging time.

Please continue to look after yourselves and your families. If you need to borrow books and games over the holidays, please pop in and see us. If you’re in need of emergency food relief, call us, and don’t forget we have free bread out the front of GeCo every Monday, it would be nice to see you!
