Community Recognition Statement
Legislative Assembly Hansard - 22 June 2022
I acknowledge and congratulate Cath Daly and the team at the Bellambi Neighbourhood Centre on the centre's reopening.
The Bellambi Neighbourhood Centre has experienced increased demand over the past two years, and it is a credit to the board, the volunteers and all the team at the centre for ensuring that the community was looked after during a very difficult time. It was a pleasure to be part of the reopening of the centre. I give a special mention to the children from Bellambi Primary School for their welcome to country. I was joined by our new Federal member, Alison Byrnes, and our local councillor, Richard Martin. The Bellambi Neighbourhood Centre plays a vital role in the community by providing groceries and care packages for needy families. For over 40 years, the centre has been a place for the community to meet, share, play, learn and grow. The reopening will allow the Young Beans Cafe program to restart, giving young people hospitality skills to help them secure jobs. Thank you to the team at the centre for their dedication and hard work.
