The Shire of Murray officially opened the Ravenswood Community Centre today, Wednesday 4 October. 

Shire of Murray President, Councillor David Bolt, said the new $1.47 million Community Centre will give Ravenswood residents a welcoming and interactive meeting place that will encourage the community to be active, involved in their communities and to connect.

“At the Shire of Murray, our recently adopted Council Plan sets five priority aspirations – one of these being ‘People’. This means we are working to ensure our community enjoys excellent health, wellbeing and quality of life. The opening of this brand-new, high-quality community hub here in Ravenswood supports this aspiration,” said Councillor Bolt.

Community centres are a place for members of a community to gather for group activities, share information, support one another and combat loneliness and promote healthy living. They help unite a community, encourage volunteering, support community projects, offer access to key services and promote a sense of place.

“They are so much more than bricks and mortar to so many, and we are extremely thankful to our funding partners – the State Government and Alcoa – for their support,” said Councillor Bolt.

At today’s official opening event, Member for Murray-Wellington, Robyn Clarke MLA, represented the Honourable Don Punch, Minister for Regional Development, and unveiled the official opening plaque.

“To Robyn Clarke, we extend a particularly warm thank you. She was a major driver in securing significant funds for the project, and we are incredibly grateful for the enthusiasm and commitment she has shown for this project over the years,” added Councillor Bolt.

The Centre includes a main function space, kitchen, meeting room, offices, storage space and changerooms with amenities. It also boasts an alfresco area, an outdoor space, and a playground.

It is available for hire by visiting SpacetoCo here.
