Community centre opens

CANLEY Heights Community Centre was officially opened last Friday.

The centre was used for the first time on the day, with Canley Heights Community Group holding a meeting.

The $1.4 million centre replaces the old Rumbriah Hall and baby health clinic.

It will comprise a new hall, an upgraded baby health clinic (opening next month), office and meeting spaces, as well as a new kitchen and amenities.

The development also has 38 new car parking spaces, including two disabled parking spots.

Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone said he was pleased the project had been completed.

“The new Canley Heights Community Centre is a project the community has been strongly supportive of so I am pleased to see the new facilities being used,” he said.

“I’m also excited to see that the new centre has a community hall, something which has been missing from Canley Heights for some years, and will now be available for all the Fairfield community.”

Canley Heights Community Centre also received some of the funding from the state government.

Councillor Carbone acknowledged Fowler Federal MP Chris Hayes and Cabramatta State MP Nick Lalich for their support in getting the project off the ground.

“It is a great example of three levels of government working together with the local community to achieve our city’s needs,” he said.
