Kingston Council approves new Indigenous Gathering Place & Life Saving Club

Kingston_Logo_Narrow_colourICACC member, City of Kingston, has announced that works are set to begin on a new $4 million Life Saving Club and Indigenous Gathering Place in Mordialloc after a builder was appointed to the exciting new community building.

It will feature a state-of-the art centre for the Mordialloc Life Saving Club and an Indigenous Gathering Place and has been funded in partnership by Kingston Council ($2.94m), the Victorian Government in association with Life Saving Victoria ($1m) and the Mordialloc Surf Lifesaving Club ($100,000). FIMMA Constructions has been appointed to construct the project and works are expected to begin in October 2015.

Mayor, Geoff Gledhill, said the project was a highlight of Council’s 2015/16 Budget and would provide a valuable community asset.  “The Gathering Place will serve as a place of welcome for Aboriginal community members where they can connect, learn new skills, learn from Aboriginal Elders, undertake ceremonial activities, share cultural heritage and hear Elder talks on caring for Coastal and Sea Country,” Cr Gledhill said.  “The space could also be a resource for the broader Kingston community to learn about Aboriginal culture, to promote Aboriginal cultural heritage and to strengthen community connections.”
