Two new fa­cil­i­ties open in town

Narrogin Observer - - Front Page - Michael Traill

The Shire of Bod­ding­ton is cel­e­brat­ing the open­ing of two new fa­cil­i­ties, the Bod­ding­ton Vis­i­tor and In­ter­pre­tive Cen­tre and Hotham Rise Re­tire­ment Vil­lage.

The peo­ple, events and his­tory that have shaped Bod­ding­ton’s com­mu­nity will be show­cased at the new Vis­i­tor and In­ter­pre­tive Cen­tre, which also in­cor­po­rates the newly re­lo­cated public li­brary as well as a gallery and cafe.

“This is an op­por­tu­nity to bring to­gether both our com­mu­nity and its vis­i­tors in a mean­ing­ful and re­lax­ing en­vi­ron­ment on the fore­shore of the Hotham River,” Shire pres­i­dent Martin Glynn said.

The new Hotham Rise Re­tire­ment Vil­lage will pro­vide re­tirees and el­derly res­i­dents who do not re­quire as­sisted care with in­de­pen­dent liv­ing units ad­ja­cent to the re­cently up­graded Bod­ding­ton Hos­pi­tal and the Bod­ding­ton Med­i­cal Cen­tre.

“These units are a much sought-af­ter al­ter­na­tive for age­ing mem­bers of our com- mu­nity, rather than be­ing lo­cated to re­mote re­tire­ment fa­cil­i­ties,” Mr Glynn said.
