Ravenswood Turning of the Sod

We held an official turning-of-the-sod event for the new Ravenswood Community Centre which was attended by local Member, Robyn Clarke MLA who was instrumental in securing funding for the project.

The new centre will enhance the quality of life for Ravenswood residents by providing a welcoming and interactive meeting place that will encourage local people to be active, involved in their communities, and to connect.

The centre will include a main function space, a heat-and-serve kitchen, a meeting room, offices, storage space and changerooms with amenities. It will also have an alfresco area, an outdoor space, and a playground.

Shire President Councillor David Bolt said, “The Shire is very pleased to support the Ravenswood community in its aspirations for a community centre.

 “Creating quality places for people is a key focus area for the Shire of Murray, and this new community centre will contribute to that. I want to congratulate the Ravenswood Community Group in particular for its leadership, vision and consistent advocacy for the project on behalf of their growing community, and recognise our local Member, Robyn Clarke MLA for her personal support.”

Robyn Clarke MLA represented the Honourable Alannah MacTiernan, Minister for Regional Development. Also attending were representatives from the Peel Development Commission, the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, Shire of Murray councillors and staff, members of the Ravenswood Community Group, and Alcoa, who helped fund the project.

This centre is expected to be completed in mid-2023.
