Another general yoga class has commenced upstairs at the Rex Centre. This one is being run by Zak, one of our volunteers on the Thursday book stall. It is based on the principles of Hatha Yoga and will be held on Saturdays from 10am to 11.30am, in the Greenknowe Room. It is suitable for all levels and is by donation. Don’t be bashful or worried about your level of fitness – just turn up and see if it’s for you.


We have two shopping services to help you.

Our Centre has a weekly list shopping service for those who are frail, elderly or disabled. The service (cost $4) enables people to remain in their own home and be independent.

We also have our Shopping Service Bus (for frail, aged and disabled customers). Shoppers leave the Centre at 10am (arrangements can be made to pick up those unable to come to the Centre). They are driven to the shopping centre and then home with their groceries. (Cost $4.) Our bus goes every Tuesday, alternating between Eastgate Bondi Junction and Marrickville Metro.


Thursdays 10am – 1pm.
Come in and browse.  Bric a brac, antiques, books. There’s something for everyone.
