Handy funding as hub takes shape
CITY of South Perth has secured funding from the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Program to get outdoor furniture for the Manning Community Hub.
The City will financially match the $17,750 grant, with funding going towards outdoor seating that will fuse urban and organic styles, while creating a welcoming and inclusive central ‘pedestrian street’.
Construction of the hub is expected to be completed at the end of 2016, with the facility opening in early 2017.
The facility is a multi-million dollar major project that will establish a new ‘heart’ for Manning, providing the community with a vibrant, connected and attractive precinct integrating community services and social activities.
It includes the relocation of the Manning Library, a community hall, Manning Child Health Clinic, Moorditj Keila Aboriginal Group, a sporting clubroom to house the Manning Rippers Football Club, an early years centre that will be the home of the Manning Toy Library and a new Manning Playgroup association.
