Shawlands Caravan Park
About Shawlands Caravan Park
You may, or may not know about us, but allow us to introduce ourselves. The Shawlands Work Group is made up of men and women from the the Dandenong Christian Reformed Church.
Our ministry in the park which is situated at 65 Sth Gippsland Hwy, Dandenong South, is to offer support and a variety of activities every Thursday morning from 10.30 – 12.00. We have activities for women (usually craft) and games for men and children, whilst serving morning tea. Food vouchers are made available for emergencies, obtainable from the park office.
We are two on-site caravans. One is for hospitality, it has a small kitchen, library books and kids toys. The other van is a mini op-shop, offering a wide variety of household goods, emergency packs, toasters, kettles, bedding, heaters, fans etc. All merchandise is available at very low prices, however if there is a real need and no money to pay for goods, it is for free, no questions asked.
After “being in the park” for 13 years we have met a lot of people, each in different circumstances and we have helped many of them, also often by offering a listening ear as we respect each person’s privacy.
Our goal is to make a difference, since we understand that life has its challenges and can be awfully tough at times. Should you have any suggestions as to how we could improve our services and/or ideas, please don’t hesitate to talk to us, any reasonable suggestion will be considered.
We strive to show that we care and wherever possible will lend a hand. We are in close partnership with park management and for any assistance the office at the front of the park is your first port of call.
We’d love to make your acquaintance.
Your friends from the Dandenong Christian Reformed Church
