The seaside hamlet of Myalup, 40km north of Bunbury, has a new focal point, with South-West Minister Norm Marlborough today officially opening its community hall.
“The development of this fantastic facility is a strong indication of the level of confidence the Myalup community has in its own future,” Mr Marlborough said.
“The hall will enable the community to have a modern, fully-equipped meeting place which will accommodate future growth in the area.”
The Minister explained that the hall, which was completed earlier this year, would serve as headquarters for the Myalup Volunteer Bushfire Brigade and become a meeting place and hub for the local community.
The new hall cost $361,000 to build and was funded by the Shire of Harvey, Lotterywest, the Fire and Emergency Services Authority of WA and the Myalup community.
When opening the hall, Mr Marlborough acknowledged the important part volunteer bush fire brigades played in rural and regional communities.
“I feel privileged to have been asked to take part in the official opening of this tremendous community asset, and I have the utmost respect for the members of the Myalup Volunteer Bushfire Brigade who will be using this centre as their headquarters,” the Minister said.
“I would like to commend the contribution made by the Harvey Shire, the Myalup Volunteer Bushfire Brigade, the Myalup Community Association and other volunteers from within the local community who have all helped to make this project such a success.”
