The centre is planning a community garden.

The importance of the centre has been recognised by local politicians who recently contributed funds for a new stove after supervisor Angela Ryder put the call out for assistance.

Girrawheen MLA Margaret Quirk helped coordinate the purchase, with local white goods retailer Jonathan Andony offering a generous discount and arranging free delivery.
