Virtual Cuppa and Chat

We have started a virtual cuppa and chat to keep people connected in these challenging times.

People can feel quite disconnected and anxious at the moment, so this is a way for people to see each other and stay in touch whilst having a chat.

Our aim is to offer this every 2nd Wednesday, with the next one being 19th August from 1.30pm – 2.30pm on Zoom.

Reusable Masks For Sale

Our sewing ladies have been really busy making masks for our community.

To date we have made 250 masks, which is a phenomenal effort or our little community. That means that around on third of our town has bought a mask.

We are still selling masks if you would like one or two.

Please contact Alison – 0438313052

We are Closed, BUT we are still Here!

By now you would already know that we are closed due to Stage 3 Restrictions.

However, we are still able to photocopy, laminate, bind documents and print photos for you. Just contact Alison and she will arrange it.

We will be offering some online workshops and activities during Stage 3.

These include – smartphone photography, how to use dropbox, how to save your photos and mixed media craft. We will also share cooking and gardening videos, Ted talks just to name a few.

As well we will be back with our Virtual Cuppa and Chat every 2nd Wednesday.

Please look after each other, take care of yourself and stay safe.

What does COVID-19 mean for the neighbourhood house?

Dear Rainbow community,

We are committed to the health and safety of our community.

At this stage, we are OPEN, although most classes will not be held such as Rainbow Melody Makers. Rainbow Men’s Shed is also closed for 1 month.

We are continuing to seek advice from our relevant authorities in helping to keep our service safe from the coronavirus outbreak. Any incidents that arise will be addressed in accordance with the advice received from Department of Health & Human services.

We urge members and families to support us by taking the following measures:

• Exercise good judgment by remaining at home/keeping children home if you/they are feeling unwell for any reason

• Talk to children about the situation, as they may be feeling anxious or stressed.

• Follow good Hygiene practices. Please refer to this link which outlines the Ten ways to reduce your risk of coronavirus – https://www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/victorian-public-coronavirus-di…

The Department of Health and Human Services has a number of resources on its website, which explain the virus, detail risk-reduction practices and behaviours, and answer frequently asked questions. These are available at www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus.

This is an evolving situation, but we will keep you updated as change occur.

Thank you for your support and as always, please contact us if you have questions or concerns.

Thank you

Alison, Joanne and Committee
