Upgrade to include spaces
Mr Chester said, "Due to operating inside of the hospital and restrictions of visitors due to the coronavirus pandemic, finding a new venue to house the group was essential. The new venue will be upgraded to include spaces to cater for a range of activities including craft, fitness and computer skills."
"The group hopes that the new venue will encourage more of the community to engage with the Neighbourhood House and act as a hub for the town." Mr Chester said. Maffra Neighbourhood House received $54,345 as part of the Federal Government's Building Better Regions Fund.
