Tuggeranong Seniors Centre – Gumnut Cottage

Gumnut Cottage Rooms

Beginning its life as a Childcare Centre, the building did a full circle in 2018 when the Club took over the vacated building.   After some ‘age appropriate’ modifications, the building provided the extra room that the Club was beginning to need.

Although not quite as modern as the Seniors Centre, the building has a charm of its own especially with the round windows which are placed at ‘little people’s’ height.    It was decided to keep the play equipment which has already had a workout from an Easter family friendly Club gathering.

The Cottage has become primarily the Games and Craft Hub.  Bolivia, Bridge, Mahjong, Cribbage and 500 Cards play each week and the Knit n Knatter and Crafty Corner groups hold their meetings there as well.

The nameGumnut Cottage’ was chosen for the ex-Childcare Centre from the variety of names suggested by Club members and was submitted by one of the Club’s founding members, Carlene Lockyer: ‘May’s (Gibbs) first book published in December 1916 was written about inquisitive Gumnut Babies in the Australian bush (capital?).  As the building was used for children who are inquisitive and now will be used by older people who are also inquisitive and still want to learn, I thought the name was appropriate.’
