Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE Moss­man Com­mu­nity Cen­tre has never been more ac­ces­si­ble.

Lend Lease has do­nated re­sources to build­ing a new ramp ac­cess to the Moss­man Com­mu­nity Cen­tre main build­ing and also build­ing an all-abil­i­ties ac­cess toi­let and shower fa­cil­ity at an­other build­ing on the grounds called The Cot­tage.

The Lend Lease Spring­board pro­gram is in full swing at the cen­tre also with ce­ment down and pil­lars up on an ex­ten­sion to the Men’s Shed, to pro­vide an­other work area so more than two peo­ple can work with the tools at once.

The all-abil­i­ties group is work­ing on build­ing a roof over the ve­randa at the flexi respite cen­tre so those who visit and work there can en­joy the ve­randa at all times without suf­fer­ing from the heat or rain.

A recre­ational gar­den is also be­ing de­vel­oped by the all-abil­i­ties group with a large chess-board in the gar­den and lawn bowls.

Work around the cen­tre is un­der­way in­clud­ing main­tain­ing the veg­etable, herb and fruit gar­dens, in­stalling com­put­ers and wifi and wash­ing ma­chine fa­cil­i­ties, which can all be utilised by the com­mu­nity.

“It’s been fab­u­lous, we’ve have peo­ple from all around the world and Aus­tralia com­ing to help and brin­ing dif­fer­ent en­ergy with them and it has been fun har­ness­ing that and put­ting it into our com­mu­nity,” com­mu­nity coun­sel­lor Michelle Philp said.

“Ev­ery­thing is on tar­get and we will have hope­fully ev­ery­thing fin­ished and then more - we have a lit­tle wish list that al­ways seems to get longer.”
