The Gosnells Women’s Collective has been granted a lease of part of the Beckenham Neighbourhood Centre in Birchington Street.

The agenda for Tuesday night’s council meeting said the collective was a not-for-profit, community service providing access to tools and workshop facilities, as well as activities and events that encourage and promote social connection and enterprise.

Activities range from book clubs to basic home DIY workshops, meditation, self-care and arts and crafts.

Additionally, the collective aims to open a Gosnells Share Shed which is a tool library, providing members of the community shared access to tools and equipment.

Due to an increasing interest in the collective’s programs, the group requested a licence over a portion of the centre.

The five-year lease will commence next March.
