Having a chat and reconnecting Bayside

Posted on 10 February 2022

We’re expanding our program in Bayside – to help encourage Bayside locals to have a chat and reconnect. This expansion is being used as a pilot to potentially enable the roll out of Chatty Cafes across Victoria.
 
We had our official Bayside launch on Wednesday, 2 February with representatives from Bayside City Council, the Inner South-east Metropolitan Partnership, Neighbourhood Houses and local members of parliament – along with some of our fantastic volunteers, venues and supporters.
 
In addition to our regular events, we’re hosting in person and online Chatty Café events across Bayside in the coming months. If you want to connect more with your local community, meet new people, or just enjoy the company of others – why not join us!
