Guy vows to support Greek community in Melbourne’s south-east

·

The Matt Guy Liberals and Nationals Government has vowed to provide $2 million towards the construction of a new community centre at the Greek Orthodox Church in Clayton South.

The main church building in Clayton South was damaged by water in February and upon investigation, black rot was discovered throughout the roof structure. The building was shut, and a temporary tent facility was set up.

The new community centre would include a commercial kitchen, multi-purpose function spaces, a shop front, multiple classroom spaces including audio visual facilities, and a new toilet block.

Member for Southern Metropolitan Region, David Davis, said this commitment will go towards a much-needed facility which will support the local Greek community.

“The Greek community make a wonderful contribution to Victoria’s culture and this commitment by the Liberals and Nationals will continue to support them,” Mr Davis said.

Liberal Candidate for Clarinda, Anthony Richardson, said this announcement would support the Greek community across the south-east.

“Victoria’s Greek community is a vibrant and essential part of what makes Victoria such a great place to live.”

“Only the Liberals and Nationals are committed to supporting multicultural communities by providing a space to come together and celebrate their history and cultures.”

Liberal Candidate for Oakleigh, Jim Grivokostopoulos, said this funding will ensure the Greek community in Victoria will have the resources to celebrate their culture with all Victorians.

“Only a Matt Guy Liberals and Nationals Government will ensure that our wonderful multicultural communities have the resources to share and celebrate their culture and positive contributions they have had and continue to have on this great state.”
