Creating connections through social clubs

Becoming part of a local club that connects people’s interests as they get older is a great way to stay active and engaged in the community.

There are more than 70 community clubs and 9 centres in Bayside offering a diverse range of social and recreational activities that are usually free or at least low cost.

The Brighton Greek Senior Citizens Club has been providing members with a place to meet and connect, sharing their heritage and traditions, since the 1990s.

Club President Heidi Simota said the club would love to welcome new members.

“We cook lunch at the Brighton Senior Citizens Centre once a week and sometimes we might take it all on a picnic. Every few weeks we might go to a restaurant,” she said.

“We like to dress up and celebrate special days like Easter, Christmas and Mother’s Day with traditional food and activities.”

Council provides grants and meeting spaces to multicultural, and other, clubs that support Bayside’s ageing community.

“Clubs like ours alleviate loneliness that some older people can feel if they are living on their own or have limited social connections within the community,” Heidi said.
