Parliamentary Secretary for the Hunter Scot MacDonald MLC today inspected the completed roof repair and structural works at the Hamilton Community Centre.
The repairs were made possible with a $32,000 grant from the NSW Government in April 2016.
Mr MacDonald said it was great to see the roof and other repairs completed so the Centre can continue their great community service.
“The Greek Orthodox Parish in Newcastle do important work for the community, assisting migrants, the aged, youth and young mothers. Newcastle and the Hunter have always done the heavy lifting welcoming new Australians into their community and stepping up when vulnerable people need a helping hand. This is a great example of the State Government supporting community based organisations to do good work in our society."
"I commend Father Scordilis and President of the Greek Orthodox Parish and Community of Newcastle, Mr Paul Milonas and his Committee for their vision and ongoing campaign to help the needy in the Greek and Hamilton community."
