The Drop In Centre in the Lockyer Valley township of Laidley is now operating on each Friday from 9am to 3pm.
The Centre is conveniently situated in Shop 10 in the Laidley Mall opposite IGA. People are invited to visit the Centre and enjoy a cuppa and some homemade refreshments. The aim of the volunteers at the Centre is to provide an atmosphere where people meet and share their friendship. Help is available for anyone not able to cope with their day to day activities.
