Today PRACE had the pleasure of officially launching this wonderful addition to the Merrilands Community Centre.
Situated within the grounds of the Centre, the Asquith building is a fit-for-purpose construction, comprising three community learning spaces with amenities. Generously funded through Darebin City Council, the construction exhibits a number of eco-sustainable features including solar power.
A huge thank you to Cr Kim Le Cerf, Mayor of Darebin, who officially opened the venue, and Councillors Trent McCarthy, Gaetano Greco and Susanne Newton who attended the launch. We wish to thank them for their support of the project which was several years in the making. There are many others we wish to thank as well: Councillor Tim Laurence, the Darebin Project Management team led by Carlo Donnoli, Darebin Business Support Officer Sarah Marshall, former Darebin Councillors Bo Li and Angela Villella, PRACE’s Board of Management, PRACE staff, students and the many community group members who use the facility every week.
We are very excited at the opportunity this new building provides to further extend services to the community.
