A DOUBLEVIEW community centre is continuing thanks to State Government funding.

West Stirling Neighbourhood House has another five years funding from the Department of Communities’ Empowering Communities Program.

It will use the $120,000 annual funds to pay for two staff and utilities at the Hancock Street facility.
