Our Committee play an integral part in the direction of the house. Without the dedication from committee the house wouldn’t be what it is today.

We are always looking for new members to join our committee, or should you have a passion we have many sub – working groups that would love your assistance and input.

Meet our 2020- 2021 Committee.

Jenny Kerr (President) – Jenny Kerr comes to us with a wealth of knowledge. 

Vice President – currently vacant

Anthony Montague (Treasurer) is a recent arrival to Woodend from Sydney. Not long after he moved to Woodend he visited the monthly farmers’ market and signed up to volunteer. He then joined the ‘Walkers Who Talk’ group at the House and shortly after joined the committee as secretary. Despite having only been here a short time, Anthony is well and truly part of the Woodend community and we are lucky to have his skills and enthusiasm at the House. Anthony just recently transitioned from secretary to Treasurer.

Dennis Gowing (Secretary) 

Terrie Hollingsworth has lived in Woodend for 15 years. She has worked as a counsellor in community health in and around the Macedon Ranges for 30 years. She came on to the board in early 2014, bringing knowledge of and experience in the not-for-profit sector and a wish to be part of a community group in the town that had a strong connection to its community.

Hubert Weisrock  has always been an active member of the community, organising youth groups, camps and bike tours in his homeland of Germany before moving to Australia. His 25 years as a technical officer on merchant and passenger ships took him many times around the world. In September 1991, while still working full time on ships, he and his wife Anna started to build a mud brick house in Woodend. After his retirement in 2002 he wandered into the Neighbourhood House, where his passion for photography, gardening, walking and cycling, and DIY was soon put to good use.
