Risdon Vale community lunch

Thank you to the Risdon Vale Neighbourhood Centre for another scrumptious meal and great company at today’s community lunch.

In addition to the 18 meals served today, volunteers also prepared and delivered 40 packaged meals to members of the local community.

I would like to pay tribute to the unofficial ‘Mayor of Risdon Vale’, Ann Harrison, who is retiring soon after decades of service to the community. Ann has given a significant portion of her life to the Risdon Vale community and has made an incredible positive difference in the lives of hundreds, if not thousands, of its residents.

Neighbourhood houses are the lifeblood of their communities and they would not be able to run effectively without exceptional staff like Ann and her army of dedicated volunteers.
