Your Community Hub

Forum is closed.

The Community Hub is under construction and is expected to open in early 2019.

It will provide a venue for events, displays, performances, meetings and other family activities that is much needed in central Kingston. It could be an art gallery one day and a theatre space or conference facility the next!

Give us your ideas on how you could use the space or what you would like to see happening there.

It should have native planting to attract native birdlife with explosions of colour when in flower that include grevilleas and flowering gums.
It could occasionally host weekend entertainment to support local musicians and other artists ...
