VAN – Essa the Communi-Tea- Van
“a unique and valuable way for people to get to know their neighbours in a busy world”
(Bernie Hetherington, Sunbury Community Health)
This buzzing community currently has several initiatives up and running. Including Fun and Love festivals and twilight movies and more recently the creation of a Communi-Tea Van.
The Communi-Tea Van is a custom built van designed into a tea-pot which serves as an eye catching community connector. The Van was designed and built by EndVision employment- a work for the dole organisation- and sponsored by JobProspect, Good Guys Sunbury and Federal employment department. The aim of the van is to provide a space for neighbourhoods to come together over a cup of tea and build community connections.
The Van will be used by Sunbury Community Health at neighbourhood festivals and can be hired by community members, groups, schools and other organisations for street parties or community activities as a way of connecting communities and starting vital conversations.
