The City of Swan’s newest community centre has been officially welcomed by the community at its grand opening and family fun day.

The Ethel Warren Bullsbrook Community Centre was a hive of activity at the weekend, with hundreds of community members heading down to check it out.

The grand opening was celebrated with live entertainment, free kids activities and a delicious food from a variety of food trucks.

City of Swan Mayor Mick Wainwright said he was pleased to see so many families, including the Warren’s, at the event.

“It was such an honour to have Ethel and her family at the event, enjoying the centre and spending time with others in the community,” he said.

“Ethel has made such a big contribution to the local area and the cultural vibrancy of the Bullsbrook community, so we only hope this centre can continue her fine work.”

The new centre includes a brand new library, replacing the original Bullsbrook Library, the Bullseye Youth Centre and the City’s Bullsbrook Rural Place Office and is packed with features including free Wi-Fi, rooms that can be booked and used by the community and a weekly dedicated Justice of the Peace (JP) Service.

North Ward Councillor Kevin Bailey said he was thrilled to see so many from the community seeing what the centre has to offer, first hand.

“I am very proud of this facility and believe it will continue to bring a number of benefits to the community,”

“It has been fantastic to see the facility being enjoyed by so many people, including Ethel and her family.”
