New CBS social hub opens at Riverside

Nov 24, 2021

On Monday 15th November 2021, we officially launched our new Riverside social hub in Launceston. The Honourable Jo Palmer MLC joined our CEO Allyson Warrington, our clients and their families, CBS staff and other community leaders for the ribbon cutting. It was great to welcome the community and see lots of happy faces enjoying the bright new space. The hub opened to the community earlier this month and has been warmly welcomed by our existing and new community members.

We’ve been working on this project for the past 18 months and it’s taken a great deal of work and effort from many different people to get the space ready to welcome the community. The new Riverside hub is located within the old Bowls club that was vacated in 2014. We had upgraded the building with a new kitchen, flooring, disability toilets and bathroom facilities as well as a new pathway and accessibility ramp.

We certainly needed a better facility in Launceston for our clients and the new hub provides that. It gives us the opportunity to deliver our programs in the hub, as well as other social activities outside and around the facility. – Allyson Warrington (CBS CEO)

The new space is much larger than our previous Launceston hub and is designed to enable us to rearrange the space however we need to accommodate different activities and events. The location is also fantastic as it allows the community to take advantage of nearby amenities such as the croquet lawn, the beautiful Riverside Golf Club, local shops and the Riverside Aquatic Centre.

It just makes me happy to get out in the morning  and know that I can come somewhere and do something with my friends – Julie Anderson (CBS Client)

A huge thank you to everyone at CBS and the wider community who helped make this happen. We’re excited for the many happy memories we’ll create together in the space.
