High tea at house

The Tatura Guardian - - Community -

Tatura Com­mu­nity House held its an­nual High Tea fundraiser at the fa­cil­ity on Tues­day, with a full-house present to en­joy a sump­tu­ous morn­ing tea, good con­ver­sa­tion and re­lax­ing time to­gether.

The pop­u­lar event saw 78 peo­ple booked in, and ac­cord­ing to com­mit­tee pres­i­dent Gail Gil­lis, ‘‘un­for­tu­nately we had to turn peo­ple away’’.

‘‘It just ex­ploded year,’’ she said.

‘‘At a cost of just $15 for the High Tea, it was real value for money.’’

Ms Gil­lis said the Com­mu­nity House pro­vided a num­ber of ser­vices for the com­mu­nity, and the fundraiser en­abled it to con­tinue in that man­ner.

She said Tues­day’s event at­tracted past and present vol­un­teers, 10 ladies from the Tatura Autis­tic Group and other com­mu­nity groups.

‘‘All-in-all it was a pleas­ant morn­ing en­joyed by all who at­tended,’’ she said.

A high­light of the morn­ing was the draw­ing of the raff le, which saw Jenna Carter take out the ma­jor prize — a $200 Fish­ers voucher, Lorraine Dennis was sec­ond ($100 Fish­ers voucher) and Nancy

this Tay­lor third ($50 Ho­tel voucher).

Tatura Com­mu­nity House was es­tab­lished in 1981 as a com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment ini­tia­tive to pro­vide so­cial ser­vices to the com­mu­nity.

The house has grown to meet the cur­rent day needs of the com­mu­nity and pro­vides a large va­ri­ety of ser­vices in­clud­ing adult ed­u­ca­tion, child­care, so­cial and leisure ac­tiv­i­ties, in­for­ma­tion and re­fer­ral.
