Somerville Christmas Carols

Four amazing choirs recently helped Somerville and our community celebrate Christmas at Parliament House.

Thank you to the talented singers of the Darwin Chorale, Darwin Youth Choir, the Sing Song Signers and our very own Somerville Choir. What an amazing array of voices.

And a big thank you to everyone who attended and added to the evening with their wonderful voices.

Farewell Bonnie

Somerville recently farewelled Bonnie Solly Director of Disability Services.

Bonnie joined Somerville in 1998 as a frontline support worker and in 2000 was appointed Manager Disability Services with joint responsibility for the management of staff and performance of Disability Services in Darwin and Katherine. Bonnie was well known in the Northern Territory and her extensive experience helped shape our service to be a leader in the disability sector in the NT. Bonnie will be missed by all at Somerville but her legacy will live on.
