About Waverton Hub

A warm welcome to the Waverton Hub’s website.

The Waverton Hub is mutual organisation of residents of Waverton, Wollstonecraft and neighbouring areas in Sydney.  As we grow older, we members of the Hub are helping each other to enjoy our lives, stay in our own homes for as long as we can, to be as healthy as we can, and achieve all this for as little cost as possible.

About a dozen of us started the organisation from scratch in late 2012. We opened for membership in August 2013 with a program of activities and by the end of April 2015 had over 300 members. Around 80 members are working on continuing to build the Hub, setting up systems, and designing and leading activities and events.
