The Kangaroo Flat Community House is hosting a family fun day full of activities this Sunday, July 15.

The house, which has been open since 1986, offers a range of services including housing assistance, tax help, computer skills courses, Centrelink assistance and more.

Community house co-ordinator Meredith Robinson said she wants the house to be an inviting and helpful place.

“We’re just a friendly place that people can drop in to have a chat if they’re having problems,” Ms Robinson said.

“It’s a chance to get out of the house and an opportunity to bring the local community together.”

The day will feature face painting, native animal farms, a mobile playzone, library corner, jumping castle and more.

Local services will also be there on the day including the Kangaroo Flat CFA, Red Cross, Good Start Early Learning Centre, and representatives from the new Gurri Wanyarra Wellbeing Centre to provide information for local families.

A barbeque and drinks will be available on the day and a lucky draw prize will be raffled off. The food and free activities will run from noon until 3pm at the Kangaroo Flat Primary School on Olympic Parade.
