New Committee for 2019

At our Annual General Meeting in late February, we were excited to welcome a new committee for 2019, while sadly saying ‘goodbye’ to others (see March 2019 CNH Newsletter).  Our new leadership team includes President, Siobahn Altham (also our Child Safety Officer), Vice President, Vaughan Brown, Treasurer, Fiona Patton and Secretary, Viktoria Bach. 

Committee members include Luke O’Connor, Emma Jedwab, Tom Ripon and Jordan Rozanski.  View our 2018 Annual Report.

Reaching for the Stars!

Not only is Circus back, but we’ve now got the rigging to introduce a whole new range of skills to our Art Attack classes.  Big thanks to the other users of the Community Centre space, and Hepburn Shire Council for helping us install rigging for silks and trapeze
