Welcome to our website we hope you find our site useful and inviting

 The historical Allwood Neighbourhood House in the heart of Hurstbridge township is one of our best community resources. Established in 1985, Allwood House has been operating as a Neighbourhood House with assistance from the Shire of Nillumbik and with Neighbourhood House Co-ordination Program funding from the Department of Human Services.
Allwood’s superb garden setting and Victorian old-world charm is relaxed and welcoming, creating a wonderful environment for learning. It is an excellent venue for trainers, facilitators and ‘home grown experts’ to share their talents, skills and knowledge.
Rooms can be hired at very reasonable rates to enable affordable practical courses and workshops that add value to participant’s lives and to the spirit of community. Allwood House staff and committee are open to all ideas, suggestions and feedback on courses and other activities.

For the love of books.....

Facilitator: Adam Cooper 0433 781 438
Dates: Last Wednesday of the Month 7:30pm-9:30pm
Commences: 27th July (Free)

"Books are not meant to be believed, but to be subjected to inquiry. When we consider a book, we mustn't ask ourselves what it says but what it means..."

Who said reading had to be a solitary activity? Join this friendly and informal book group to chat about all things bookish.
Bring along your latest literary treasure and get some inspiration from fellow readers.

In this reading circle there are no set books and no boundaries, our emphasis is on sharing our love of reading.

gthPS we also share our love of sweets so bring along a plate to share.
