Wyndham City is pleased to offer free training sessions for volunteers and community groups in Wyndham.

The free Winter Community Training Calendar has been released and is filled with various training and volunteer sessions.

Wyndham City Mayor Cr Peter Maynard said: “Many community members have stepped up during the pandemic and started community projects or groups to actively support their communities.”
