ALMA renews Regents Park Community Hub contract

ALMA is very pleased to inform the members and friends that the Auburn Council has renewed the lease to use the Regents Park Community Hall for year 2010/2011. The contract was signed this evening (26/08/2010) at the Auburn Town Hall and the lease is valid until 31/07/2011. The Community Hub is an initiative of the Auburn Council to provide active community based organisations in the Auburn area to use it's facilities for development activities.

Community Projects Officer at the Auburn Council, Ms Jennie Dunlop who is the officer in charge for allocating council resources to various applicants has kindly accepted our application to extend the time allocated to us previously by an hour. Therefore as per our new lease agreement the new time for using the Community Hub is on Fridays from 7.00 pm to 10.00 pm on a fortnightly basis. If we wish to use the facilities at other times, we are able to negotiate with other users of the facility.

In addition to meeting rooms, kitchens, toilets, the Community Hub also has computer/Internet and photocopy facilities. All users are also allocated a locker for keeping small items for storage purposes. ALMA used the facility to conduct a number of its executive committee meetings in the past 12 months.
