Celebrating 50 years


Coming to the jubilee gathering by car? This map showing parking areas may come in handy. Also, there will be plenty of space in Albert Street, south of the railway line next to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.


And the holder of the Hop Nation lucky ticket is Will from Williamstown! Thanks everyone for your kind donations, and especially to Hop Nation for their generosity and hospitality at the launch of their new brew ‘The Patron’ – a delightful beer to add to the offerings.

WHEN: 2.00 pm Sunday 21 October, 2018

WHERE: Metro West, 138 Nicholson Street, Footscray


Mayor Cuc Lam and President Ian Johnson are officiating at our jubilee gathering.

Come along to share stories over a lovely afternoon tea.
