THE $4 million Quinns Mindarie Community Centre will open next month after works finished sooner than expected.
The City of Wanneroo plans to open the facility in mid-June following an upgrade that included extending Quinns Mindarie Surf Life Saving Club’s ground floor home and adding a second storey.
The upper level extension includes a 310sq m function hall, training room, two meeting rooms, a kitchen and playgroup facilities.
Quinns Rocks Fishing Club will be one of the groups using the facility and secretary Richard Lee said members were looking forward to moving in after 12 years at Gumblossom Community Centre.
“We are really looking forward to moving in there and hoping to revitalise our membership and attract new members being close to the beach,” he said.
“The premises certainly look very impressive.”
Mr Lee said the club, which formed in 1989, had been working with the City and Mayor Tracey Roberts for about 20 years to get the facilities and this would be its fourth “home”.
The Mariginiup resident said the club met on Friday evenings for social functions and regularly organised entertainment.
It also holds monthly fishing competitions for its 90 members, including women and children.
“We try to be all inclusive; to be family orientated,” Mr Lee said.
Other user groups will include Jane Jones Zumba, Helen O’Grady Drama Academy, Feathers Yoga, Mums in Action fitness class, Cygnets Dance for pre-school ballet and Mindarie Quinns Playgroup.
The Quinns Mindarie Community Centre will also be available for the public and upgrades include an extra 50 parking bays.
Builder Broad Construction Services WA completed the works last month, ahead of the original practical completion date in July.
