Welcome to The Ponds Community Website
What a great place to live.
This community website is an integral part of The Ponds Community Development Programme, organised and run by Connections Community Development (a division of North West Community Care), sponsored by Landcom and Australand. The programme is here to help you settle in and connect with your local community.
Our Community Development Facilitators, Tuula Schaeffer and Kerrie Dennett, are here to assist in building a sense of commuity at The Ponds. Included in the Commuinty Development Prgramme is welcoming each new household by personally visiting and delivering a Welcome Pack and a gift from the developers. Tuula and Kerrie also organise community events, which provide you, the residents, an opportunity to meet and connect with others who live in or around The Ponds. To keep you up to date, there are regular newsletters and flyers, in your mailbox and on this website.
If you have any questions, ideas or would like to know how to get more involved in your local community, please contact Tuula (click on "Contact us" on the menu). Please also contact her if you would like to receive our email updates.
NBN: Residents can register now for rollout notifications. To receive notifications about the NBN rollout at The Ponds, register for updates by calling NBN Co on 1800 881 816.
Community Centres & Parks: The Ponds will eventually have two community centres. The Ponds Community Hub is currently under construction and should be available for public use in July 2014. Please note it is too premature to make enquiries or bookings. Please visit Blacktown City Council and The Hills Shire Council websites for information on community venues. If you wish to have a party in a park, you are most welcome to enjoy our lovely parks and bookings are not required. We just ask that you take your rubbish home with you, leave the facility clean and do not put up jumping castles or marquees as these can damage the under ground springker systems.
