Neighbourhood houses in Riddells Creek and Lancefield are set to benefit from a funding injection if Labor is re-elected at Saturday’s election.

If re-elected, Labor has promised $50,000 for Riddells Creek Neighbourhood House and $100,000 grant for Lancefield Neighbourhood House to continue providing programs and facilities for their communities.

Labor Member for Macedon Mary-Anne Thomas said the important investment would bring together residents and strengthen the communities.

“The best communities are those that make you feel welcome, and thanks to this investment in Riddells Creek and Lancefield Neighbourhood Houses, locals will be able to better enjoy these spaces to get together and feel at home,” she said.

“This project will make sure the hardworking volunteers and staff at Riddells Creek and Lancefield Neighbourhood Houses can continue to welcome families into these spaces – exactly what the community deserves.”
