Port Melbourne Neighbourhood House rocks

The hot day did not deter the Port Melbourne Neighbourhood House from putting on a great Community Carnival today. In fact, I think it encouraged people to stay around longer in the cool of the House. Several people said how much they liked the size of it - 'not too big' - and the way the space was arranged to encourage interaction. There was always some shade to retreat to. Easy going music throughout the hot afternoon made a good atmosphere. People put a lot of work and flair into Port Melbourne and sun smart themed t shirts. The Neighbourhood House truly fulfils its role as a gathering place for all comers in Port Melbourne. There has been some discussion about setting up neighbourhood 'cool' places for extreme hot days. Today showed how such places could potentially work.
