The City of Swan’s newest Community Centre will open its doors at 9am on Monday July 17, 2017 one month ahead of schedule.

The Ethel Warren Bullsbrook Community Centre will include a brand new library, replacing the original Bullsbrook Library, the Bullseye Youth Centre and the City’s Bullsbrook Rural Place Office.

City of Swan Mayor Mick Wainwright said the new centre was a real asset for the City and community.

“I am positive that this centre will become the true epitome of a community hub; a place that all members of the community can use and get involved with,” he said.

“The centre 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, so it really has something for everyone.”

The JP Service will be available at the centre each Saturday from 10 to 11.30am, starting on Saturday July 22, 2017. Residents will also be able to make payments on a number of services including rates, animal registrations, infringements and payments for library services.

North Ward Councillor Kevin Bailey said residents would also benefit greatly from having the Bullsbrook Place Office located so close by.

“The City’s Place Offices provide a range of helpful services and advice on a number of areas including grant applications, local events, community and youth development, community safety, local area planning, City facilities and infrastructure, and much more,” he said.

Councillor Bailey said the inclusion of a new youth centre was also a real win for the community.

“The Bullseye Youth Centre will provide a safe place for young people aged 12 to 17 to socialise and get involved in a range of activities created specifically for them, as well as provide them with access to youth workers and youth services.”

The City is also taking expressions of interest from community groups and local businesses to hire spaces in the new facility. The centre has six rooms available, including two activity rooms, two meeting rooms and two office spaces.
