Community Litter Clean-Up: April 5
The New Farm Neighbourhood Centre is hosts monthly community cleanups as a part of the 104 or More initiative. It’s important we take care of the area in which we live because once it’s damaged by litter it’s hard to recoup. So, make sure you head down to the Neighbourhood Centre at 8 am for a day of saving the environment!
The 104 or More initiative encourages everyone to collect two pieces of litter per week. As a result, within 12 months 104 pieces of litter will have been prevented from entering bushland and waterways.

THE HOTTEST TREND FOR APRIL
See ‘Us’ at the New Farm Cinema
Head down to the New Farm cinema and catch a screening of the hottest movie for April, ‘Us’. Produced, written, and directed by Jordan Peele, the mastermind behind ‘Get Out’, ‘Us’ has already been critically acclaimed.
The film centres around a family heading to the beachside for a summer holiday. Adelaide Wilson (Lupita Nyong’o) is a mother haunted by unexplainable and unresolved trauma. A string of eerie coincidences sees her paranoia elevate as she becomes certain something is going to happen to her family. After a day at the beach with friends, Adelaide’s worst fears are confirmed when the family is pitted against a terrifying opponent; doppelgangers of themselves.
This terrifying movie is definitely not one for the kids, but it can’t be looked past for an interesting date night! ‘Us’ is released on March 28, so don’t miss out!
