We love the Garran Community

At Philip Kouvelis Real Estate we love the Garran community.  We have a dedicated community service program in place to ensure that we are able to give back to the community that has supported us at each opportunity.

One of the major events each year is the community Christmas carols we host at the local shops. This event has grown from being a small gathering of a few families, to a major event which requires significant preparation, logistical planning and a lot of hard work from all of our staff. Planning for the event begins many months before hand and our dedicated team work tirelessly to ensure that the event is a success. Goods and services are sourced from local suppliers where possible, such as the Garran Bakery, Garran Teed Meats, Little Garran, Garran Friendly Grocer and the Garran Medical Centre. The agency team creates hampers and sources other items for raffles, with money raised from the event being donated to Malkara School in Garran.  And of course Santa and his elf is the star attraction along with The Canberra Hospital Choir and Garran Primary School Choir.

Another event we hold annually is the ‘Party at the Shops’. As a close-knit community, the local shops are a hub for community members to meet, and catch up with each other in a social setting. This brings the community together, showcases many of the excellent products available from local businesses, and raises awareness of particular issues amongst certain groups in the community. We have found this event to be incredibly valuable in terms of keeping us in touch with the local community, and allowing us to gauge whether there are other areas of community that require assistance, all with a sausage sandwich, a beverage and some community spirit.

Our Party at the Shops and Community Christmas carols is held on the first Tuesday in December and we welcome everyone along.  We will have a band, face painting, Santa, a sausage sizzle and plenty more. So come along all are welcome.
