Dear community leaders,
We would like to thank all of you for your ongoing support and guidance to the ANMC team.
We are pleased to share the good news that Hume Council has decided to grant planning permission for a place of worship and related activities at 100 Duncans Lanes, Diggers Rest. We are now 100% certain that we can have our temples and multicultural hub at 100 Duncans Lane, Diggers Rest. We came across many obstacles in the journey, as the site we bought had Melbourne airport overlay and the land was meant for farming activities. Considering the constraints we had, the outcome we have today is amazing. We couldn’t have done it without the collective efforts of various committees, valued life members, external consultants, volunteers and donors. Thank you all for your patience, continuous support and trust in the ANMC team.
Our initial strategy was to begin with temporary facilities and build further structures in several stages. In line with the approved planning permit proposal, we now aim to modify the existing structure and make it suitable for temporary temples and mediation halls.
We are organizing a Grand Gala Dinner and Live Music on 25th June. Like any other program, this event will have no meaning without the support from all of you. We request you to book the tickets for the event. Please try to bring as many people as possible from your area who haven’t yet become a member of ANMC. We should encourage such individuals and families to become life members of ANMC during the Gala Dinner. Building a community centre is our collective responsibility and no one from our community should be left out of this noble cause.
Please click on the link below to reserve your seat as early as possible since we need to plan for the event based on the number of participants:
The entry fee for the event is $75 for each individual and children below 14 are not allowed. Group booking of 10 can be done for $700 which will give you a saving of $50 instead of booking it individually.
