The Ethel Warren Bullsbrook Community Centre was a hive of activity on 3 September, with hundreds of community members heading down to check out the City of Swan’s newest facility. The grand opening was celebrated with live entertainment, free kids’ activities and a delicious food from a variety of food trucks.
City of Swan Mayor Mick Wainwright said he was pleased to see so many families, including the Warrens, at the event. “It was such an honour to have Ethel and her family at the event, enjoying the centre and spending time with others in the community,” he said. “Ethel has made such a big contribution to the local area and the cultural vibrancy of the Bullsbrook community, so we only hope this centre can continue her fine work.”
The centre brings together many of the services in Bullsbrook to one place — the Bullseye Youth Centre, the Rural Place Office and of course the brand-new library; which incorporates state of the art facilities, meeting rooms and a weekly dedicated Justice of the Peace service. The Kids’ Corner is a highlight, with a bright and innovative design to encourage young children to join in the fun of reading and help them on their literacy journey. There is also a fantastic Lego table and an outdoor playground.
North Ward Councillor Kevin Bailey commended his team for delivering such a great facility, ahead of schedule and under budget. “I am very proud of this facility and believe it will continue to bring a number of benefits to the community,” “It has been fantastic to see the facility being enjoyed by so many people, including Ethel and her family.”
The Ethel Warren Bullsbrook Community Centre is located on Maroubra Avenue, Bullsbrook. It is open from 9am-5pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday; 9am-7pm Tuesday and Thursday and 10am-3pm on Saturdays.
