One of our volunteers Naomi a dedicated enthusiastic volunteer amongst her hidden talents started the first DIY Women’s Workshops this year in the Men’s Shed. Naomi was a specialist secondary school teacher for over 30years. She taught everything from textiles and wood to art, ceramics and basic electronics.
Naomi joined the Hub in 2018 where she has previously been involved with the Early Learning Centre, Dementia Café and Boomerang Bags and as an avid green thumb Naomi maintains the garden in the café courtyard and kitchen garden. Naomi volunteers because she wants to give back to the community, meet likeminded people, to keep active and connected. She likes Seawinds Community Hub because it is just that – a hub and hive of activity! It houses a lot of programs and essential services. There are classes, community groups, the Men’s Shed, Early Learning Centre, playgroups and much, much more. There is something for everyone.
Naomi has done a lot of travelling both in Australia and overseas, but she admits she loves Oz the best and living in McCrae on the Mornington Peninsula is special. I can enjoy all my passions, gardening, DIY and the beach and it’s not far from my three adult daughters in Melbourne.
Put your hands together. Thank you to Naomi for your amazing contribution
