Strengthening New Communities Program

Have fun and get connected in 2017

Building a suburb is one thing, but creating a friendly neighbourhood is another.  The City of Casey invests in the 2017 Strengthening New Communities Program which offers a number of opportunities for residents living in Clyde, Clyde North and surrounding areas to participate in fun, free activities.  The program provides activities for people to connect with their neighbours and to get to know the services and facilities on offer in Casey. The program will continue in the Clyde, Clyde North area until the end of the year.

Activities coming to you during February and March 2017

Come and join us, say hello and see what Casey has to offer.  We welcome resident involvement in all these activities.  If you would like to help in some way, please let us know.

RSVP to one of our activities and attend to go into the draw for a $250 Voucher.
