More time for gathering space to make plans

Mar 3, 2020 | Achievements, News

In February I asked Minister for Aboriginal Affairs Gavin Jennings to support the Mullum Mullum Gathering Space in Ringwood and we are pleased to hear they have secured a license to stay in their property until the end of the year and are in the process of developing a feasibility study to explore the options of staying in their current location or moving to new premises.

Reconciliation Eastern Metro Group approached Rod last year for help when their landlord suddenly put the property the gathering space has occupied for many years up for sale. They received $50,000 to fund a feasibility study from the Aboriginal Community Infrastructure Program 2019/20, with a report due mid year on the best option for the gathering space.

The building is in need of repair and we were pleased to hear that the landlord has agreed to fix some of the major issues, with works on these already underway.

We look forward the outcome of their report.
