City of Rockingham Mayor Barry Sammels encouraged residents to join in the celebrations.

“Since opening in 1993, the City of Rockingham Autumn Centre has consistently been a focal point for community activity,” Mr Sammels said.

“While the City may have changed a lot since the mid-1990s, I’m delighted to see that the Autumn Centre remains as popular as ever in 2018.

“The continued success of the Autumn Centre is a testament to the members who make it such a fantastic place, and the City staff who continually strive to provide an engaging and welcoming place for them to visit.”

The centre presents a range of activities and events year round, including dance and fitness classes, arts and crafts, games and support groups, excursions, and services including podiatry and hairdressing.

The Autumn Centre is on McNicholl Street, Rockingham and is open Monday to Friday from 8.30am-4.30pm.
