The Glenavon Community Hub’s co-ordinator Eva Wongchiu has only held her position for three months but has already observed many exciting things happening within the community.
One of the recent achievements was the Food Pantry and Mini Library which was launched in Miranda Street in December.
Construction of the pantry and library was a joint effort, involving volunteers from the community and students from Glenavon School. The Food Pantry was stocked with donations from within the community, while thanks go to Padmini from Blockhouse Bay Library for organising books for the Mini Library.
Adding to the excitement on the day was the gift of a lawn mower from Blockhouse Bay Baptist church, which will be at the hub and is available for community use.
The launch day bore testament to Glenavon Community Hub’s mission statement, "Doing Good Stuff Together.” Reflecting on the celebrations at the end of the day, Eva commented, "It is love, it is kindness, It is Community."
