WELCOME TO OUR SITE.....
The Bowden Brompton Community Group Inc. was established by members of the community to:
serve the needs of the community as determined by the community
encourage community growth
provide community services
address housing issues
develop programs and facilities for the local community
provide life-skills and adult community education programs
Evolving from community action and very humble beginnings, the Bowden Brompton Community Group Inc has developed into a mature organisation now providing a range of programs and services which include: support services including housing services, adult education programs, informal recreational and pleasure activities, the provision of newly developed facilities including information technology rooms and rooms which are accessible by the whole community.
The Community Group, first established in 1976, has evolved and adapted to the changing community needs. This year has been a significant year in the Community Groups history and its future ongoing presence within the Bowden Brompton community.
In March 2004 the ownership of the building at Green Street was finally passed into the hands of the Bowden Brompton Community Group. This achievement was made possible with the initial ground work being laid by staff from previous years, and with the support received from the Hon. Michael Atkinson MP, our local member.
The building and grounds have been significantly improved, with the final upgrade included paving the driveway and installing a Rollerdoor. Already the revitalized building has given community members a place to hold special family celebrations, as it is within their budget and has attracted workshops, training sessions and small conferences on the weekends which brings in much needed revenue.
The Bowden Brompton Community Group is recognized as an important resource for our local community for local members and those beyond. The support and interest that has been experienced over the years from the community has been overwhelming and reflects the important role the Centre still plays within the local community and we thank you all for your encouragement.
In the not to distant future, the community will be witness to the creation of an exciting and attractive suburb which will provide a renewed and vital area for families to live and work. The influx of new residents to the area, will generate more demand on the services at the Community Centre and the changes already in place will allow for that growth.
