THE Champion Centre and Seville Grove Library will enjoy a revamp in 2018.

City of Armadale received a Lotterywest grant to help with the rejuvenation works, which will focus on an improved building design for the Champion Centre and enhancements to the outdoor area for both locations.

Some services will be moved to Camillo’s Harold King Community Centre during the redevelopment, including the City of Armadale’s Indigenous Development team, Child and Adolescent Health, Palmerston Counselling and Dawn Alcohol and Drug Counselling.

Armadale mayor Henry Zelones said the new outdoor areas would include a yarning circle, outdoor classroom, nature play areas and edible gardens.

“A digital hub will be created for Seville Grove Library, with a view to increase training opportunities, improve literacy and job readiness,” he said.

“We appreciate the community’s patience during the construction stage, and we are looking forward to welcoming residents and service providers back to a transformed Champion Centre and Seville Grove Library in early 2019.”
