D2DL - Drop-In Centre
The D2DL program provides a Drop-In Centre which is open week days
8.30am - 3.30pm. The Drop-In Centre offers a kitchen facility where
you can come in and have a cuppa, and a lounge area where you can
watch a movie, have some fun playing Wii games or just relax and read
a book from our library.
The D2DL program also makes use of the adjoining board-room to run
a range of activities - which has included painting, creative beading,
writing, hat-making, mandala drawing and more! See below for regular
activities - and check out the monthly calendar for updates.
