Council contact is increasing

28 Sep 2010

 

The City of Melbourne’s contact with Docklands via its Hub community centre continued to build last financial year.

Some vital statistics from the year include:

  • 23,330 visits for the year, with an average of 1944 visits each month;
  • Community use of The Hub meeting spaces was 4235 hours, compared with 3926 hours last financial year;
  • Wireless access connections almost doubled with more than 1255 connections;
  • The biggest increase was in community use of the library services offered from The Hub. Over the last year loans increased 169 per cent and returns increased by 179 per cent. On average, over 1000 library items are returned via The Hub each month; and The preschool story-time program continued to grow over the past 12 months with an average of 25 children attending each session compared with 19 children last year. There are also now 13 weekly playgroups compared with eight for the same time last year.


Activities aimed at building a stronger community in Docklands include:

  • Hub Clubs @ Lunch sessions aimed at workers in Docklands have been successfully run since early May and have increased to two activity sessions per week; and
  • Over the past 12 months a variety of users have booked The Hub to offer programs and classes. These range from yoga, meditation, kinder-ballet, Mini Maestros, U3A botanical art, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, YHA bushwalking, Toastmasters, Chamber of Commerce, Linux Computer Group, Brightstars children’s dancing and acting, MS Society of Victoria information sessions and VicDeaf hearing tests.
