Furry fun for the Monday Mob

Eddie echidna strikes a pose as Tom from Museum Victoria introduces the Monday Mob to some of his furry friends.

Our Social Support Group, 'The Monday Mob' had a real treat last week when Tom from Museum Victoria's Outreach Program visited with some furry friends.

'Mobsters' were able to get up close and personal with some of our unique Australian fauna, and share stories of their personal experiences with them in the past.

Jean was struck by how soft the possums' coats were.

Social Support Group Co-ordinator, Brooke, said everyone had a wonderful afternoon.

"Tom brought an amazing array of animals with him and was able to share interesting information that we wouldn't otherwise have known," she said.

"Most of us wouldn't have had a chance to see all these animals up close in the wild, so to be able to see and touch these beautiful specimens was a real treat.  The ring-tailed possum and echidna were a favourite," she said.

We run Social Support Groups on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday for those who have difficulty getting out and about but want to stay connected to their community.

There was a lot of love for the koala.

We also offer an outings group that runs fortnightly and several monthly social groups.

If you or a loved one Connect Health & Community provides transport to most groups to make sure no-one misses out on the fun.
