Weekly cuppa, craft & chat | West Gippsland
November 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:45 pm AEDT
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until 09/12/2021
First responder families, join us at a local café for a cuppa and chat. Feel free to bring along your own small craft activity to work on as we catch up. Some of us colour, while others patchwork or knit. You can draw, make a card, or whatever is your activity of choice (that leaves plenty of space for cups of tea and coffee!). Some weeks we include a topic to discuss to encourage connection. If you can’t attend every week due to rosters, call outs and family commitments, that’s okay. You only need to register for the first time you come. The purpose of this group is to socially connect with other first responders and first responder families/ kinship groups.
This activity is free for first responder families (Check out Who We Serve here. Suitable for first responders to join with a partner, friend or member of their kinship group. Young children are welcome. Fortem is currently monitoring COVID guidelines closely and may reschedule this event and notify participants accordingly.
