Wootton Community Network

"People Helping People"

The community network is a volunteer organization.

Established in March 1999, after a series of public meetings, the Wootton Community Network was formed to encourage community spirit, sustainable development and local employment. 


  • to see the local area prosper once more, with improvements to existing services and the creation of employment opportunities in an environment of community not isolation. 
  • to enhance the lives of people living within the local community.
  • to serve as an example to other small isolated communities. 
  • to develop a sense of pride within the community.
 Community Resource Centre - opened July 2004.
  •  It was constructed entirely with volunteer labour over a period of four years.
  • This vital local facility houses the Brush Turkey Cafe and is the administration centre for the Wootton Community Network.
  • It provides a focal point for this small community, a meeting place for locals and a market for local produce and products attracting visitors from both the region and the highway.
 Adjoining Wootton Hall
 Linked to the Community Hall, we provide a unique venue offering on site catering for conferences and workshops. The community hall has seating for 50 people offering catering via the Brush Turkey Cafe.

 Monthly Dinners & Gatherings
 Throughout the year, Monthly Community Dinners are held at the cafe (last Saturday of the month) as well as movie and music nights.

 A bi-monthly newsletter, the Wootton Valley News, is a free distribution, detailing local events, information, products and businesses. The print run is now at 500.

 Future Goals
  • To become an attractive meeting place for locals, to serve their social needs and thus reducing isolation.
  • To attract people to the area who will share in the future vision of the area.
  • To promote and protect this areas natural beauty through eco-friendly tourism and visitor accommodation.

Annual Membership fee is $12.50
