Music at the Hub is Back to Entertain at Mt Ommaney

It’s time for some relaxing and entertaining music again as Music at the Hub returns at the Centenary Community Hub in Mount Ommaney in June.

Music at the Hub is presenting musicians Jodi Murtha and Angela Toohey on Saturday, 17 June 2017. The event will be from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

Jodi is a Brisbane-based folk musician known for her laid back style of acoustic songs. Her music is described to have strong melodies with interesting stories. Jodi performs all over South East Queensland as a soloist, bass player or backing vocalist. She released her first solo EP called “Contents Unknown” in 2016.

Angela writes emotive ballads exuding love, loss and growth. Her music is rich in imagery and occasional howling at the moon. Angela draws from her musical theatre experience to entertain and captivate the audience. Learn more about Angela’s music at

Angela’s top notch vocals and strong rhythm guitar amazingly blended with Jodi Murtha’s instinctive bass and harmonies will surely make the mid-year Music at the Hub one enthralling evening.

Mindfulness Comes to Mt Ommaney

Less stress, better sleep and a joyful life. These are just some of the benefits that the Mindfulness Works course offers people in the Centenary area.

Two sets of mindfulness meditation workshops will be held at the Centenary Community Hub in Mount Ommaney. The classes will be conducted by occupational therapist Debbi Lacey, an expert in stress and anxiety management. She is trained in mindfulness-based cognitive therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

The mindfulness workshop will be held on four Thursdays and is suitable for beginners or those who have never practised meditation before.

The Centenary sessions are part of the Mindfulness Works training sessions happening at different venues in Brisbane.

With the workshop, participants can have a better understanding of mindfulness meditation and how they can practise it every day. The course is not simply an introductory training session. Attendees will be able to practise between classes so they can experience the benefits of mindfulness in their daily lives.

The workshop promises to be a practical and fun activity where the language used is straightforward and modern. It will be perfect for people who are interested in learning this meditation technique to help them cope with everyday stress and live a more fulfilling life.

The sessions at the Centenary Community Hub will be on 4 Thursdays from May 4 to May 25 and from July 27 to August 17.

One Centenary Hub for Everyone

Fun and healthy interaction with members of the community helps people in the Centenary suburbs to better appreciate life in this part of Brisbane. That is what the Centenary Community Hub is all about.

The Hub is a product of the community’s fight to have a community centre of its own. For more than two decades, residents around the Centenary area have pushed for such a hub.

Their plea was granted in November 2011, when the Centenary Community Hub was opened at 171 Dandenong Rd, Mt Ommaney.

The club is managed by the Centenary Community Connections (CCC), a non-profit volunteer organisation working to improve interaction and connection among members of the Centenary community.

Hub for All Ages

Since its inauguration, the Hub has become a main venue for different kinds of activities that bring together people from all walks of life.

Every day of every week, people young or old get to enjoy fun activities, learn new skills, or do something good for themselves or for the community. Activities cover a broad range, from music to dance to martial arts and even cross-stitching and knitting.
