Rose Hill Ward August/September update 

We are so pleased that the Green Spine community space in Airport West opened in July! We worked in consultation with our residents to create a community-focused space that we hope will encourage you to get out there, keep active, and spend time outside with your families.

Valley Youth is a service for people aged 12 to 25 years who live, work, study or spend time in Moonee Valley. One of our spaces is the Valley Youth Space in Niddrie (previously the Niddrie Hub). This hub will evolve over the coming months and we look forward to sharing it with you.
