“More Than You Can Imagine” is the message from the Archie Graham Community Centre ahead of its open day on Tuesday May 30.

Everyone is invited to visit the facility, speak to staff and learn about the broad spectrum of programs and activities on offer.

Guest speakers Dr Eric Fairbank, St John of God dietician Krishanthi Shanmugathasan and Warrnambool City Council Manager Capacity Access and Inclusion Richard Stone will talk about living well physically, mentally and socially.

Tours of the facility, located at 118 Timor Street, will run from 10am until 1pm. There will also be a street art tour, leaving from Archie at 10am.

Archie Graham Community Centre Coordinator Ken Radley said that many people in the community simply were not aware of all of the programs and activities available at the centre.

“There is a perception with some people that Archie Graham is where you go to sit down, play cards and watch Casablanca. While card players are certainly well catered for, and we do show regular films, there is so much more that we offer,” he said.

“We have computer and iPad classes, craft, table tennis, carpet bowls, a writer’s group, a hydrotherapy pool, very popular strength exercise classes, regular bus trips, social walking and cycling groups and so much more. 

“Dancing and singing groups are also supported by the Senior Citizens’ Club, as well as billiards and a painting group.

“And to top that all off, Archie has the Tasty Plate Café on-site, which is a great place to just pop in and meet up with friends for a coffee and a meal.

“The Archie Graham Community Centre is a friendly and relaxed place for people to find out about and join in with community activities that keep them fit and healthy, independent and connected to friends. 

“It’s a place to continue to learn new things, develop and share skills and re-engage with interests.

“If you’re new to Warrnambool, recently retired from work or simply looking to be involved in community life in new and interesting ways then visit the Archie Graham Community Centre.”
