New community centre for Donnybrook
Donnybrook residents will enjoy a new community centre thanks to a funding boost from the state government.
The government will provide Whittlesea council with $2 million from the Growing Suburbs Fund and $709,500 from the Living Libraries Infrastructure Program for the Patterson Drive Community Centre.
The centre will include three kindergarten rooms, maternal and child health consultation suites, community kitchen and community hall, as well as a lounge and multipurpose activity spaces, providing a library service and a range of community programs.
Yan Yan MP Danielle Green said it was great to see the government investing in Donnybrook’s first community centre.
“The Patterson Drive Community Centre project will be an incredible asset for this growing area,” she said.
“Thanks to this funding, Donnybrook families, children and community members will be able to access the services they need, close to where they live.”
