- Small Biz Chat
The small biz sector is large and vibrant. Small businesses make up 97% of all businesses operating in Australia. Whether we get into building our own small business because we want to spend more time with our family, to work on our own terms, be at home with our children, or to pursue a lifelong passion..... whatever the reason, small business counts! And it can be incredibly rewarding But it can also be it can be brutally tough, isolating and a wee bit confusing This is a meetup where small business owners can come together and discuss shared experiences, bounce around ideas, talk through challenges, and importantly, to celebrate wins. It's a meetup where you can gain support and inspiration to push forwards to a successful small business. This is a casual meetup, no need to bring anything but yourself, although a notebook may be useful to jot down inspired ideas. We will meet fortnightly; -on a Monday 10am-12pm -beginning the 25th of March -at Armadale Park Cafe in Armadale # Please note change of venue. Original venue was Haynes Bar and Grill. Now meeting at Armadale Park Cafe. You will find us at the table with the yellow Befriend flag. Haynes Bar and Grill have a great menu for those who wish to purchase themselves a drink or snack during the catch up. This is a child friendly venue, but please remember that children are the responsibility of the person who they came with. Small business lights me up. I have run my own for a few years and have recently graduated with a Diploma of Business and am now studying a Bachelor of Social Science. I would love to hear what you're up to :)
- Sunset walk at Burns Beach
Meet on the coastal path outside the cafe. Look for the "Befriend" flag. Wear comfortable shoes for walking. We will walk/roll for 30 minutes south of Burns Beach and then return as the sun sets. If you don't want to walk the whole distance there are plenty of benches with beautiful views to make use of. You can join us again on our way back. Generally we will walk regardless of the weather. As someone dear to me used to say: "There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing".

- Boomerang Bag Sewing
Volunteers from all walks of life get together to make re-useable fabric "Boomerang Bags" using recycled materials, to provide a sustainable alternative to plastic bags. The bags are given away to friends, family, colleagues, bagless strangers and so on, as a plastic bag alternative that can be used and reused, or passed on to others in need. The bags create a platform to start conversations, make friends, up-cycle materials and work towards shifting society’s throw away mentality to a more sustainable revolution of re-use – one community, needle and thread at a time! Thanks to wonderful donations from the local community, all materials are provided. BYO sewing machine if you would like to help out by sewing. No experience necessary, experienced sewists are available to help you if you are just starting out! Plenty of things for non-sewists to do as well.
