Community invited to book city space
25 Sep 2018
COTA NT’s headquarters located at Spillett House on Smith Street in Darwin CBD include a large activity room with adjoining kitchen. We aim to keep this space as busy as possible with activities such as fitness programs, health and well being workshops, information session and forums. Many seniors’ service providers and organisations approach us for use of the space to hold awareness days, information sessions and other activities throughout the year and we try to accommodate as many as possible.
We provide the space and offer suggestions about what works best at Spillett House (e.g. timing of events and activities and parking advice); supply light refreshments; and provide basic equipment for presentations (including monitor, laptop, lectern and microphone). COTA NT-hosted activities are open to all seniors in the community. We also help facilitate activities in Berry Springs, Coomalie, Alice Springs and Katherine.
As we are asked to host a wide range of activities throughout the year, we invite service providers and groups to book in their date and time for seniors’ events for 2019 now. We are especially happy to host awareness days that directly benefit seniors such as Neighbour Day, World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, Harmony Day and International Day of Older Persons. With plenty of lead-in time, we can even do our bit to help promote sessions through our social media pages and online Territory Seniors Calendar. Please submit a COTA NT 2019 Program application online via the COTA website by the end of November 2018 if possible.
Other news about activities. We start a new program of Tai Chi on Tuesdays from 2 October, 9am ($5 COTA members, $7 non-COTA members) and a save the date: COTA NT’s 5th Seniors EXPO – Friday 31 May 2019, also a celebration of our 50th anniversary. Registrations open in the New Year.
