The Beachmere Hub was officially “opened” recently with Moreton Bay Regional Council Mayor, Peter Flannery, cutting a ribbon in front of local community groups.

This new meeting room and event venue has various size rooms available for use and hire for any number of occasions, including a commercial kitchen.  

Beachmere Area Network Group (BANG) have been announced as Managers of the venue and are busy co-ordinating tours and bookings.

U3A Beachmere have made the Hub their new home and are already welcoming students to classes and workshops.

The weekly JP Witnessing Service also now operates from the Hub, after relocating from the local shopping centre.  The service offered by local Beachmere JP’s will continue to assist locals on a Saturday morning between 9am and 9.30am.

The Beachmere Community Lawn Bowls Club continue to play at this location, bowling on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

BANG will use the HUB as a base from which to co-ordinate the many community activities and events they organise with the Hub featuring as the venue for the many Sesquicentenary events which have been postponed to May 2021.

BANG President Karen Harris was very pleased that, after over two years of negotiations and renovations, the Hub had finally opened.

“Beachmere celebrated it’s 150th Birthday this year and a great number of events were scheduled to mark our Sesquicentennial year.”

“We have had to postpone nearly all those events, so to have this great local resource open for everyone to use has been wonderfrul.”

But, the year is not over yet and we have been working on a few other surprises as well, which we hope will be commenced, if not finalised, in this very special year,” Karen said.
