Community from the Ground Up

Finishing the Feast Space with a Deck! (and indoor/outdoor resurfacing)

Project details

Suggested by: Rose

Project partner: The Old Church On The Hill

Budget

$85,100.00

With the ongoing support of the community, The Old Church on the Hill (TOCH) has been transformed from an ageing, highly underutilised church property into a thriving community hub. A deck would extend the recently developed Community Kitchen and Feast Space into the Community Garden, providing a family-friendly outdoor space where people can sit, watch their children in the playground, and connect with friends and neighbours over a cuppa. The deck will be complemented by a refreshed wooden floor in the Feast Space, and a consistent, trip-free surface across the site. It will be free for use by the community.

So what is TOCH? TOCH is a community space in Quarry Hill, Bendigo, which exists to strengthen neighbourhoods, foster community connectedness and resilience, and reconnect people with the natural environment. Site developments, such as our commercial-grade kitchen and accessible toilet facilities, have only been possible through community contributions and fundraising. A deck is a much-needed addition as, especially during music and multicultural events, the Feast Space can be a bit tight for the growing TOCH community! Plus, the deck, with its access ramps, the refreshed Feast Space flooring, and a consistent surface connecting the buildings, will further enhance TOCHs aims.

This group are doing outstanding work in their community, facilitating heaps of groups, providing food, and encouraging many people to share their lives in a positive way. Their long term record speaks for itself. I admire them and all they're achieving for their neighbours.
