The Gin Gin Community Hub is turning one during the month of September and to celebrate, residents are invited to join in on the fun at a free circus-themed morning tea.
Featuring live music, clowns, face painting, a sausage sizzle and a range of activities, it will be a morning of festivities at the hub on Thursday, 23 September.
Divisional representative Cr Wayne Honor said the Gin Gin Community Hub had been a wonderful addition to the region since opening last year.
“Even with COVID restrictions in place the community hub has been a great spot to meet, connect, build friendships, access services and information or sit and relax in the library space,” he said.
“This event will be a fantastic opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate all the wonderful things we have achieved together in the past 12 months, including the opening of our fantastic hub.”
The hub was part of major works in Gin Gin when construction took place in 2019, with the main street also part of the upgrade works.

The building, situated at 4 Dear Street is now home to the Gin Gin Library and Gin Gin Neighbourhood Centre and aims to provide the community with an accessible space to be active, participate in activities and events, to engage and to be supported.
Cr Honor said all residents were invited along to celebrate the first birthday event.
“There will be a live music by Sticky Rock Duo, a circus performance by Tyrone O'Reilly, face painting, craft activities and much more,” he said.
“Of course, we will have a birthday cake cutting and a tasty sausage sizzle to enjoy by the Gin Gin Men's Shed.
“Bring the whole family along to celebrate and enjoy our fantastic community hub.”
The birthday event will kick off from 9.30 am to 11.30 am.
