The Adelaide South West Community Centre opened to the public in 2005 in leased premises in Sturt Street after considerable behind-the-scenes work by local residents and Council.  Since 2005 it has become the central hub for strengthening the local community. The property changed hands in 2018 and the Council secured two extensions to the lease.  In February 2021 the owner will take possession of the premises and although Council resolved in August 2018 that the Centre will continue close by, the community is concerned about its future. Sue talks to Marjon Martin, Secretary, Susan Collins, Chair, Jeffrey Collins, Committee Member on behalf of the South West City Community Association Inc. Listen to part 1 and 2 here.
