Cen­tre up­grades to ben­e­fit com­mu­nity

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News -

UP­GRADES to the Man­jimup Fam­ily Cen­tre’s Meet­ing Place are mov­ing for­ward with build­ing ten­ders to go out soon.

The cen­tre has $250,000 to spend on the pro­ject, which will in­clude the con­struc­tion of an ad­di­tional room at the Meet­ing Place and up­grades to the ex­ist­ing build­ing.

Money for the pro­ject con­sists of $190,000 from Lot­tery­west, $47,000 from Roy­al­ties for Re­gions and $13,000 from the cen­tre.

Cen­tre co­or­di­na­tor An­dre Foulon said the new 14m x 7.5m build­ing would in­clude big­ger rooms for Re­la­tion­ships WA, an ad­di­tional coun­selling of­fice, a toi­let, kitchen and seat­ing area.

“We hope to have it done by spring next year,” Mr Foulon said.

The build­ing will also co­in­cide with the cen­tre’s 40th an­niver­sary.

Changes to the ex­ist­ing build­ing will in­volve a com­plete in­te­rior fit out in­clud­ing new car­pets through­out, LED light­ing and a laun­dry.

“The up­grades will make the build­ing more func­tional, es­pe­cially to se­niors who don’t have to cross the street to go to the toi­lets,” he said.
