Bridgetown Family and Community Centre celebrated Neighbourhood Centre Week with Zoom cooking classes and takeaway food on Wednesday.

Pip Mills and Natasha Broun were recruited to share their recipes and cook a feast to provide takeaways to participants.

Neighbourhood Centre Week runs between May 8 and 15 annually and recognises the contributions of neighbourhood centres to communities.

The cost to participate was a donation, with the proceeds being split between Bridgetown’s Country Women’s Association and the Greenbushes Belles, with each group receiving $125.

Centre manager Jo Moore said they had to find a new way to celebrate the week this year.

“Usually every year we do something pretty big, we open up our doors, we have guests, we invite other community groups and we’ll have activities and special morning teas and guest speakers,” she said.

“This year was the first year where it was like, ‘what are we going to do, how do we celebrate that we are a community centre still trying to provide connection and community services without having the people here’.

“Food brings everyone out, everyone loves food, everyone loves Pip’s food and everyone loves Natasha’s food, so it was a bit of a winner there.”
