Rose Hill Ward December/January update 

We’re pleased to see plans for a Melbourne Airport Rail Link gaining traction. We’re now lobbying for the proposed route to include a new train station at Airport West, which would significantly benefit the busy Airport West and Essendon Fields precincts.

Following the Valley Youth Space relaunch earlier this year, we've installed a new neon sign on the building at 3 Matthews Avenue, Niddrie. We're continuing to run regular youth programs at the new space including school holiday activities, film nights, training, workshops and the Rainbow Valley Queer Youth Group.
