The Northern Suburbs Women’s Friendship Group Inc. Merriwa
In December of 2017 a community of interested women from the northern suburbs of Perth came together to form a friendship group for themselves and other local women.
The purpose of the meeting was to create a welcoming and private place of safety and connection for women in our community as a means of reducing the social isolation that so many of us, especially older women living alone face with the ultimate aim of strengthening ourselves, our families and our communities by building self-confidence, foster respect for ourselves and others.
We are a non-for-profit group located at Jenolan Way Community Centre, 16 Jenolan Way, Merriwa operating two days a week Monday and Thursday from 9.30-2.00, the group is predominately older ladies over the age of 60 but any age group or nationality is welcome. We have many activities to chose from like Knitting, Sewing for Angel WA Sisters, many craft activities Line Dancing, Beginners Yoga, Low Impact Exercise, Belly Dancing, Meditation and Singing it is up to you whether you join in, some ladies just come for the companionship and support.
We also go for lunch once a month and the occasional day out like Arulen to see the Tulips in September.
