The Bribie Island and District Neighbourhood Association (BIDNA) has been offering their community all the support they can, despite being substantially limited by the size and facilities of the building they operate from.

In early February, the Queensland Government announced a new, purpose-designed centre would be built on the site, replacing the existing building and providing upgraded spaces to allow for the rise in community needs.

BIDNA President, Anne-Louise Williams, expressed her excitement for the new building “The committee, employees and volunteers have received the news we had been waiting for, for years… that our long-desired purpose-built neighbourhood centre was to become a reality.

“The news of the development of a new centre was like music to our ears as we could finally envision that we could have a centre that would meet the needs of our growing community demands.

“Having a purpose-built centre will benefit our community at large in a broader service delivery as we will have the room to deliver more services to those in our community who require our support”.
