CARDIGAN Village residents applauded the announcement they would receive a revamped a community centre.
The $199,539 redevelopment would be perfect for the growing area, according to parent of two Matthew Hernan, who has lived in the town for three years.
“It is convenient for us because we are just down the street, rather than taking them (the children) to Haddon or Alfredton,”” he said.
“I think Cardigan Village already has a strong little community and it is good to see it growing, I suppose.
“This community centre has been a central feature and it is good to see it expand.
“I would like to see it turn into even more of a community hub.”
Mr Hernan said the centre already receives use from residents.
Cardigan Village Community Centre president Heather Wood said she would continue to work with the City of Ballarat on further potential for the facility.
The idea of using the centre for a variety of things alongside the childcare facility was a model that had been used in other towns previously, according to Ms Wood.
