A NEW community centre will be built at Preston Beach with $95,000 from Round 2 of the Federal Government’s Building Better Regions Fund.

Canning MHR Andrew Hastie said the centre would provide a space for important local services such as visiting health professionals and fire brigade training.

He said the centre would host around 120 community functions a year and serve as an emergency evacuation centre for Preston Beach residents.

“It’s vital small communities like Preston Beach are not forgotten,’’ he said.

The centre is one of five local projects funded under the Building Better Regions Fund, providing more than $6 million in projects throughout the Peel region.
