Community hub opens in Westall

November 26, 2017 by  

At a cost of $8.9 million, the Westall Community Hub is now open for business.

Described as a ‘one-stop shop’ for a host of in-demand community services, the new facility will cater for residents from throughout the City of Kingston, including Braeside.

The new Westall Community hub, according to Kingston Mayor David Eden, has much to offer including a brand new library with the latest digital technology, such as 3-D printing services, free Wi-Fi, green screen and a range of fun activities for all ages. These include author visits, school holiday activities and Storytime sessions.

To assist young families, the facility also provides child/maternal health services, playgroups and a kindergarten.

Wellbeing, education and health services rooms will be used by a range of various service providers expected to include personal and financial counselling, mental health services, psychology services, education, dental screening and speech therapy.

Mayor Eden said joint funding by the Victorian Government and Kingston Council had contributed to the Westall Hub becoming a reality, enthusing:

“This will be a fantastic place for the community to gather together, strengthen local connections and benefit from quality services for the whole family.”

He said the Council has been working actively at investing in quality sporting, childcare and community facilities such as the Westall Community Hub to ensure residents are well served for many years into the future.
