People from all walks of life will be able to access a brand new community space when the doors of Coronation Hall open to the public on Saturday 13th April.
Not-for-profit organisation South Eastern Community Connect (SECC) has been operating out of Eastlakes Shopping Centre for over 40 years, and the time has come to expand its offering.
“As SECC has grown and evolved, we’ve observed a real need for a second, larger space in which to holistically support the local community,” CEO Kate Melhopt says.
“The site at Coronation Hall on Botany Road, Mascot will enable us to implement a wider range of services and build on our presence in the south-east Sydney region.”
SECC will share the space with The Deli Women & Children’s Centre, offering a range of intergenerational community services and specialist assistance, family case management, aged care services, children and family services, and community programs.
“Coronation Hall will provide a safe and relaxed place for people from every age group and every background to access support for improving their general wellbeing through programs, services, and everyday social connections with their community,” Kate Melhopt says.
The site will offer a toy library, counselling rooms, adolescent services, seniors’ groups, drumming workshops, art therapy, and much more.
The official ribbon-cutting and Grand Opening will be held on Saturday 13th April between 11am and 2pm – and the whole community is invited.
Families and community members will enjoy balloon animals, community art activities, a sausage sizzle, drumming workshops, and much more on the day.
Coronation Hall is located at the corner of Botany Road and Coward Street, Mascot.
