The North Ringwood Community House is located at 120 Oban Road in Ringwood North, behind the Holy Spirit Primary School. The last twelve months have been especially significant for the community house with the introduction of several new courses, included the accredited Certificate IV in Disability Work.
While the City of Maroondah provides ongoing funding for its neighbourhood houses, it is also encouraging that the state government has increased its funding arrangements thus helping to ensure the continued viability of these essential community assets.
The AGM included speakers from Yarra Valley Water who discussed water conservation measures given continued water restrictions for metropolitan Melbourne and most of Victoria. Since Melbourne’s households consume 70% of the metropolitan water supply is crucial that households minimize water consumption wherever possible. Water efficient showerheads and installing a dripper system for gardens are just two examples of ways to reduce water usage. The inclusion of such a topical issue within the AGM demonstrates the community-minded nature of North Ringwood Community House
The North Ringwood Community House has a proud record of innovation and I’m sure this will continue to prove successful over the next twelve months.
