Artist’s studios are open from 10am – 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.

If you can’t make it to all the studios on your list in March look out for the next Open Studio weekend on the Queens Birthday weekend in June.

YOUTH SPACE @ TYABB OFFERS ONGOING COMMUNITY SUPPORT

What:  A ‘pop up’ youth space will operate at the Tyabb Hall every Wednesday from today throughout term 1.

 Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Youth Services has set up the space to continue to support young people in the area following the tragic incident that occurred in Tyabb on Wednesday 12th February.

 Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Watson Ward Councillor Lynn Bowden said it will be a place where young people can seek support and relax.

“There are gaming consoles and iPads with free internet access available, information and advice, and support from professional youth workers.”

 “All of our local young people are welcome to pop into the centre, hang out, play games and talk to friends,” she said.

Following the tragic incident that occurred in Tyabb, Mornington Peninsula Shire created a Safe Space at the Tyabb Hall to provide professional support and counselling for community members affected by the incident. The youth space is an extension of this support, focusing on the critical needs of vulnerable young people.

Cr Bowden said many young people that attended the Safe Space said they would love to see a youth space created in the Tyabb community.

“This Youth Space is a direct result of this feedback and understanding that the community will require ongoing support – especially young people – in the weeks and months to come,” said Cr Bowden.

Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Councillor Antonella Celi said that the effects of the Tyabb event have been felt across the community.

“The effects of events such as this ripple throughout the whole community.  I sincerely encourage anyone – of any age, gender or location – to seek out help from any of the many services throughout the Peninsula that can offer assistance.” 

“Residents who require counselling or who simply wish to talk to someone about how they’re feeling are encouraged to drop in to their local community centre for more information or contact Lifeline Australia (13 11 14) or Beyond Blue (1300 22 4636) for telephone counselling.

“The Mornington Peninsula is a tight knit, caring community and the Shire will continue to support  safe health and wellbeing outcomes for our community,” she said.

The Tyabb youth space will operate every Wednesday from 3pm to 5.30pm throughout school term 1 in the Tyabb Hall’s Annexe Room, 1535 Frankston Flinders Road.  For more information please call 5950 1666.
