About the Program:
The Weston Pram Pushers welcomes mums, dads, grandparents and
carers to come along with their children for a walk in the Weston area.
This gives everyone involved the chance to socialise and build
friendships as well as get some exercise and fresh air. The group walks
to a nearby playground where the older children have a chance
to play for a while before walking back to Cooleman Court where the
group sits down for a coffee or tea together and a chat.
The Weston Pram Pushers is run by the Community Development
Program which is focused on inclusion, disadvantage, diversity, wellbeing and the environment. The program develops initiatives and
creates opportunities for people to form connections, share experiences,
participate in projects and activities and build on individual and
communal strengths. Community support can include service development, assisting groups to
develop good governance, seeking grant funding and facilitating group activities.
