Hills Community Connect

By Bev Jordan
IF you have some time on your hands and want to get involved in your community then Hills Community Connect may be the place to start.

Norwest Sunrise Rotary Club is hosting a special community market day at Harvey Lowe Pavilion Castle Hill on Sunday, March 20th to showcase the different groups operating in the Hills area and the variety of options to join or volunteer.

There will be a free coffee from The Hills Daily Grind plus a free sausage sizzle for attendees who can then browse the stalls and chat to people from various organisations in the area. Community Connect is supported by Hills Shire Council and aims to break down the barriers of isolation and connect people with community groups who are making a difference.

Groups attending so far include The Positive Vibes Foundation, Friends of Bella Vista Farm, The Hills Historical Society, Castle Hill Art Society and the Wanderers Bushwalking Club as well as BushCare volunteers and several service clubs.

President of Norwest Rotary Club Mercedes Durante urged local community groups to get involved by having a stall and urged people considering joining a club or group to come along.
