New Duke of Kent Community Building Completed

The new Duke of Kent Community Building was officially opened on Monday 24 June 2024.

Mayor of the City of Wagga Wagga, Councillor Dallas Tout welcomed special guests including First Nations Elder Aunty Mary Atkinson, and members of the Wagga Wagga Veteran & Vintage Motor Club (VVMC) and University of the Third Age (U3A), who are long-term users of the previous site.

The new building includes a new sound system and a soundproof wall divider, which will allow the space to serve multiple user groups. Fresh office spaces have also been created for ongoing use by the VVMC and U3A.

External upgrades include a new 22-space carpark, while solar panels and upgraded storm water and sewer systems ensure the site will be well supported by its surrounding infrastructure. A multi-purpose undercover area has also been erected.

The VVMC and U3A will now use the new space as a base for their meetings and activities, however the venue will also be accessible to other community groups and members of the public via the online booking system on the Council website.
