What is S.H.E?
Simply Home Essentials is an initiative run for women by women. We promote professionalism in the home; fostering the dignity of individuals and creating an environment where families can flourish.

How does it work?
We run a series of short presentations and workshops throughout the year on home related topics as diverse as fashion, good lunchbox ideas, household budgeting, family health, growing your own vegetables, and cake decorating.
SHE is a great way to meet other home makers, be they stay at home mums or women who work outside of home. Got little ones? Bring them along and grab a cuppa while they're socialising!
