ABOUT US

In January 2021, The Macedon Community House Inc. (Trading as Macedon and Mount Macedon House Inc.) was registered as a Not for Profit Incorporated Association. A volunteer Committee of Management was formed for the purpose of securing the Council-owned property at 47 Victoria St, Macedon, for ongoing use as a community facility. A memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed with Macedon Ranges Shire Council to lease the building, subsequent to a jointly funded Building Renewal Project being undertaken.  The House officially opened in November 2022.

Macedon & Mount Macedon Community House, Our Vision, Community Connection

OUR VISION

The M&MMCH serves as an all-abilities access community connection hub. A safe and inclusive place, where people of all ages meet, get to know each other, share skills, knowledge and mutual support. It serves as a centralised place of recreation, creativity and learning, honouring the history of the land on which it stands.
 
The House itself is a place where community members can collaborate to develop a program of activities, events and new initiatives. By working with the community for the community, Macedon Community House Inc. contributes to developing our local communities' social, cultural and economic capital and their collective well-being. 

OUR MISSION

The Committee of Management’s mission is to: 
  • Ensure that the Community House is user friendly by providing essential fittings, furnishings and equipment.
  • Plan and implement for building & land use developments at the Community House that meet the evolving uses and requirements of user groups
  • Provide equitable access for user groups seeking to hire space at the Community House.
  • Auspice a Community House program of activities, events and initiatives in partnership with interested local community residents, groups or organizations
  • Build the Association’s capacity to fulfill organizational requirements and comply with financial and legal obligations

AGM & the new M&MMCH Committee of Management

The Macedon and Mount Macedon Community House held its 4th Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Monday 20 May 2024. The AGM confirmed that our name is now formally Macedon and Mount Macedon Community House, and our Constitution was updated to reflect this and formally articulate our purpose statement. The audited accounts were presented and demonstrated our sound financial position.

 

Samara Hodson (M&MMCH retiring President) presented the 2023 Annual Report outlining the many achievements for the year. The highlights included:

  • securing several philanthropic, local and state government grants for various projects including the major landscaping project, kitchen renovation, furnishings, gardening equipment and digital communication upgrade (note the new website!)

  • creating new partnerships with Shared Table, MRFEC and Goldfields Libraries

  • organising a targeted sponsorship program attracting several local contributors

  • fundraising sausage sizzles and community outreach activities

  • enabling several programs that make us a better, more cohesive and connected community including playgroups, yoga, permaculture, craft, choir, small library and canasta sessions

  • generating much needed revenue through venue hire activities for our operations budget.

 

Samara thanked all our supporters, sponsors, current and retiring committee members and all our generous volunteers. We understand that none of this activity could possibly take place without their valued support and input.

Some of our foundation committee members have now retired and so we welcome the new committee to build on the solid outcomes we have achieved for our community to date.
