MORNINGTON Community Support Centre has reopened its doors on Main Street, Mornington after nearly eight months being closed due to flood damage.

“I’m so proud of our team for their resilience and determination over the past eight months,” the centre’s CEO Ben Smith said.
“Without missing a beat, we have continued to offer service to the community throughout a challenging time, knowing there are others in need. We are very excited to be returning home to celebrate our 40th year of providing support to this community.”
The mayor Cr Steve Holland said the centre’s “ethos and work … demonstrates an unfaltering commitment to bettering the Mornington Peninsula”.
