Cranbrook Regional Community Hub opens
Cranbrook has a new focus in its town centre following the opening of the Cranbrook Regional Community Hub on Friday 11 August.
The hub is a clever conversion of a vacant supermarket premises and provides a wide range of facilities for the community.
Features include a medical suite for visiting doctors and an emergency operations room.
Child care is available on the premises and there is a commercial kitchen, community gym, activity rooms, professional offices, training facilities and an art gallery.
GSDC Chair Ross Thornton congratulated the Shire of Cranbrook on delivering the $910,000 project, which included $150,000 of Regional Grants Scheme funding through the GSDC.
Mr Thornton said the Shire had undertaken extensive public consultation to ensure that the development met the needs of the regional community and its enterprises.
