Words by Jodie Powell

The official opening of Deception Bay’s Community Hall was among the highlights of the Moreton Bay Region’s second Community Council Meeting.

The $3.7 million project will be the new home of main lessee Deception Bay Meals on Wheels with a modern new kitchen and workspace.

Built with a $2.5 million contribution from the federal government, it will also be available for community groups to use and includes a new community facility with meeting spaces, a kitchenette, supper room and an amenities block.

A Welcome to Country was performed by Kabi Kabi elder Lyndon Davis, followed by a Haka and Samoan dancers to celebrate the area’s large Pacific Island community.

After the ceremony, Moreton Bay Regional Council held its regular council meeting in the new facility’s main hall.

Stage two of the site’s development includes construction of new park infrastructure including pathways, seating areas, refurbishment of an existing storage shed, play equipment, outdoor gathering spaces, regeneration planting and landscaping.
