New Kingsgrove Community Centre progressing well

Posted 20 May 2009 by (Hurstville News)

Mayor Badalati said the facility is expected to be fully operational by October 2009.

“The building is almost at lock-up stage, with the roof now completed, windows installed and the internal walls stood,” he said.

“A range of other services, including all the plumbing and electrical work, is also now underway.”

The new centre will accommodate Kingsgrove Community Aid Services and Kingsgrove Child and Family Health Services, which are currently operating out of the former Beverly Hills Child Baby Health Centre at 506 King Georges Road, Beverly Hills, while construction is underway.

“The new community centre will enable the two organisations to expand and enhance their services in a spacious, modern facility,” he said.

“The centre will include two early childhood clinics, designated parenting support facilities, and meeting spaces for community and aged care programs.

“In addition, a new community hall including a function room, kitchen and toilet facilities will be available for hire.

Mayor Badalati said once completed, the new Centre will be an important meeting place for the many community groups and individuals with different needs and interests in the Hurstville local government area.

“This new community hub will provide families, the elderly, those with special needs, and cultural and special interest groups with a multi-faceted venue for community activities, support programs, information sharing, and other purposes,” he said.

“Council is committed to delivering quality community-based facilities that meet the needs of all residents in our City.”
