Events And Activities

SCC is a hive of activity. Regular groups are expanding, and we’re always introducing new

 activities. Whatever you love to do, it’s always more fun when you do it with others.

Sorrento Community Centre
Term 3 2021 (version 2) Program Guide

Sorrento Savvys

The Sorrento Savvys is a firm favourite with our over 50's Centre members. A jam-packed social calendar of events and fun experiences will keep you happily on the go.  

There are weekly walks, bush hikes, lunches, monthly drinks, dinners in local restaurants and even picnics.

The Savvys visit local attractions, like Heronswood, the McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery, regional galleries, Beleura House and more.

A quarterly program designed by the members will keep you busy updating your calendar so you don’t miss out on any of the upcoming events.

Individual Savvys can take responsibility for planned events and everyone is encouraged to bring new ideas to the group. It’s a sharing and caring environment.

If you want to become a Sorrento Savvy, call Reception on 5984 3360. The cost is just $10 per

year, in addition to the $15 Annual registration fee.

As a Savvy Member, you’ll receive a quarterly e-newsletter to advise you about upcoming activities.
