By learning about the common signs and methods used by scammers, you'll be better equipped to detect fraudulent activity and avoid falling victim to it.

Wine Appreciation Evening


Try something different at The Hub next month - you will now have the oppurtunity to do some wine tasting with Gerry Prewitt, our neighbour and wine expert. On May 13, Gerry will visit the Hub to share his passion for wines, and the subtleties and nuances of each unique wine. This evening is all about tasting wines that are interesting and exciting, from local grapevines as well as other parts of Australia.



This is an opportunity to delve deeper into the art of wine appreciation, learning about the subtle nuances and complexities that make each wine truly exceptional. Gerry's wealth of knowledge and passion for the subject will illuminate the finer details, allowing you to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for the world of wine right in The Hub. Join with your fellow members and friends to share an amazing evening over a glass of wine.

What are your thoughts on Mental Health?


Well-known linguist Dr Kate Burridge and her research team will be in Perth from 27 - 30 May - recording 30 minute interviews to study community attitudes to mental health (lived experience of mental health issues is not necessary). Participants so far have found the inteviews a fun and interesting experience.

 

Using analysis of the kinds of speech we use, this national research project aims to tackle the very unhelpful stigmas surrounding mental health in older people. The team are seeking a few more interviewees from WA - so if you're interested, please see attached flier for more details! 

 

Interviews will be conducted at Connect Victoria Park on 

  • Mon 27 May from 11 am

  • Wed 29 May all day

  • Thur 30 May from 10 am

Also, the team will visit people in their homes if preferred.

 

To book an interview spot, please contact Dr Helene Thomas, Helene.Thomas@utas.edu.au 0437 046 110




 

 

Do You Have A Story To Tell?


The ‘Life in Pictures’ short film competition is a collaborative effort between the Department of Communities, arts organisations, and the community aimed at addressing ageism and promoting positive attitudes towards ageing.


Ageism encompasses stereotypes, prejudices, and discriminatory actions based on age, affecting individuals and society as a whole. Studies reveal that about half of the population holds ageist beliefs, underscoring the pervasive nature of this issue. Notably, ageism can also be self-directed, hindering individuals from engaging in various activities.


We believe our Village Hub Community, as individuals and as groups, have a trove of diverse experinces and perspectives wiating to be shared with the world.  By coming together to tell your stories, you not only celebrate the richness of your community but also embrace your unique voices and experiences, and tell your story, your way.


Please give us a call or email us if you're interested.



Filmmakers of all ages and skill levels are invited to submit films of up to three minutes in length, exploring themes related to ageism or promoting positive messages about ageing.
