We want to hear from you


Do you use Fawkner Leisure Centre? Do you want to? We are upgrading the centre. And we want to hear from you.

Our goal is to improve the centre so it meets the needs of our growing and changing community.

We know we need to make some major improvements. But what will they be?

What are your ideas?
We are talking to the community about this project over several stages. The first stage is getting feedback using focus groups.

Will you join us?
We are looking for a wide range of people from across the Fawkner community to join a focus group.

We will make sure the groups represent the local community. This selection will be done by our independent consultants, ChatterBox Projects. They will let you know if you have been selected for a focus group.

How to join a group
If you want to join a focus group, you will need to fill out a form.

Make sure you express your interest in joining a focus group by 5pm on Friday 12 March.

You can also pick up a form at Fawkner Leisure Centre or Fawkner Library. It is available in 6 community languages.

About the groups
We are holding 3 focus groups on:

  • Sunday 21 March from 2pm to 3.30pm
  • Monday 22 March from 6pm to 7.30pm
  • Wednesday 24 March from 10am to 11.30am

If selected, you will only have to attend 1 session. They will be held at Fawkner Leisure Centre or Fawkner Senior Citizens Centre.

Read more about how we are consulting the community on Conversations Merri-bek.

You can win
Anyone who fills in a form will go into the draw to win free membership of Fawkner Leisure Centre for 3 months.

So why not get involved and help shape the future of your local leisure centre!
