Whittlesea Township Boomerang Bags

Hello, welcome and please join us! The group is run by Ursula and Felicity and we are a very active group, meeting every week on a Thursday come rain, hail or shine!

We absolutely love our volunteers and we have become close friends, chatting constantly and enjoying lunch while we sew, pin, iron and cut to make a positive difference to the environment.

Whittlesea Township is a country town right at the end of Plenty road in Melbourne’s north. Our local Men’s Shed made some Boomerang bag boxes and these are stationed at Delightful Frootz green grocer and the Monday bric a brac Market at Whittlesea Showgrounds. We also supply the Primary school, library, various cafes and gift shops etc whenever we can.

We are extremely grateful to the Whittlesea Community House for their hospitality, guidance and support these last few years. We meet each Thursday during school terms at meeting room 2 at the Library.

**Working with the House allows us to help those who need to meet their 15hrs of in-kind volunteer obligations.**
