About Us

About the Bus Stop Club

Bus Stop Club behind Hope Church, Corbin Avenue.

The Bus Stop Club aims to support families with children at school who live on and around Heatherlands. We provide listening for parents, family fun, money management support and host parenting classes.

Susan Sutherland is the Project Co-ordinator.

What do we do at Bus Stop Club?

Mondays Listening and Support Service – 1:1 listening sessions are available by appointment for local residents.

Family Fun drop in sessions – On Wednesdays local families can come in after school and spend time socialising and spending time with their own children. All enjoy drinks and biccies.

The children can create with lego, enjoy the play mobile equipment,  do puzzles, draw and make sticky pictures.
