East Creek Staff
A Word from Sally
Hope you all had a great break and a wonderful Christmas.This looks to be an exciting year for East Creek Community Centre. We will be having some renovations done, the property next door has been purchased and our car park will be upgraded, so it will be much easier for anyone who has mobility issues to access the centre. Our toilets will be upgraded and a bit of a general tidy up will occur. We will be relocating whilst this is happening and will have more details in time to come. A massive thank you to the Queensland Government for investing in our service, I am sure the community will reap the rewards for years to come.
On the 10th of March it will be thirty years this year since East Creek started at the big blue house in Kitchener St. East Creek Community Centre was initially started by Lifeline in 1983.The centre was started due to an awareness of for the need in the community for an informal drop in centre to relieve isolation, loneliness and alienation. We will be having a celebration after the renovations are completed to celebrate this, so watch this spot!
