West Heidelberg Housing Project – Assistance request

Neil Wilson spoke of an innovative local housing project in which he is involved.  He is seeking support from any Club71 persons, able to provide assistance.
Neil invited Br. Harry Prout along to a recent Club71 breakfast to explain this West Heidelberg project. Bill Anderson has offered his support as Project Manager.

The following info is outlined in an email from Br Harry

The project involves 4 vacant adjoining West Heidelberg residential properties (owned by Banyule City Council) being made available for a benevolent partnership of community groups and individuals to refurbish to an acceptable, liveable standard and then make available to local homeless people known to us on an interim or short to midterm basis.

Bill Anderson, as a Registered Builder, has taken over as Project Manager of one of the houses and it would be ideal if any of our crew could support him as he brings the house, 37 Bardia Street West Heidelberg (pic above) to a liveable standard. This house has been earmarked for a local couple in their 30’s who are on welfare, have a 2 yo child and 6 month old baby. Currently all four are living in one room in the house of a pensioner relative, we’d like to have them in this renovated house within 3 weeks if possible.

The main things that are still required for the house that Bill is attending to are electric stove top and oven, range hood, topsoil, rubbish removal, painting throughout, new light fittings, smoke detectors, glass shower screen, door furniture and fence repairs. If any Club 71 members, or anyone they know, can assist with the supply of any of the above their contribution would be greatly appreciated. Similarly if anyone else has the time, skills or contacts to help in anyway we’d love to give them a tour of the properties.
