Great news for everyone who loves the Open House backyard!

After the wild weather last year which damaged our pre-existing shade cloth, Open House was in need of some cover again for our beloved backyard space, used by all of our programs.

After seeing some incredible retractable awnings online we reached out to Shade Solutions for a quote and much to our surprise once they found out a bit more about Open House, they donated a brand new motorised retractable awning for free.

Thank you to Andrew and the whole team at Shade Solutions for their generous donation, it is greatly appreciated and all of Open House’s wonderful participants will be able to use the beloved backyard space again.

Open House is currently in need of volunteers for the following programs:

  • Team member to help run Backyard Sports in local parks
