Welcome to the Mooloolah Community

The Mooloolah Community Centre is the home and work hub of Mooloolah Valley Community Association Inc.
MVCA  is a  "charitable, not for profit"  organisation, run solely by Volunteers.   There are no paid staff.
MVCA is run by a Management Committee of 10 volunteers from wide and varied backgrounds including finance, defence, nursing, social work, local government and administration.  There are 35 volunteers who support the Centre by doing tasks such as garden maintenance, administration, cleaning, assisting in the Op Shop, sorting, food preparation, building maintenance and many more. Everyone at the Centre works for the benefit of the Mooloolah community, and the positive flow-on effects are felt throughout the “4553” postcode area.

Our organisation's target group is all residents living within the 4553 postcode area.  Our aim is to promote health & well-being in our community, by offering the locals a welcoming, non-discriminatory, inclusive, pro-active community hub, where people can come together for activities, education and social interaction.

MVCA Inc. is registered with the A.T.O. & the Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commission, as a charitable, not for profit entity.

MENS SHED WORK TO DATE!

The Mooloolah Community Men’s Shed Inc. is at last becoming a reality!
In 2018, Bernard Verwayen OAM (JP Qual) met Andrew Wallace Federal Member for Fisher at a Volunteer function, and asked if there was any Federal money available to build a Men’s Shed at the rear of the Mooloolah Valley Community Centre.  Andrew said “Leave it with me” .

About a month later, Andrew came back with the answer “If the LNP wins the Election, they will give you  $250,000.00 to build a Men’s Shed in the Mooloolah Valley.  And the rest, as they say “is history”. The LNP won the Federal Election and Andrew honoured his promise to our community. 

An interim Committee was formed, with John Holland being voted in as the President with a Committee of 5 local men and Kim Gebbie as Secretary.  No males put their hand up for the Secretary’s position, so Kim very kindly offered to step in and assist them. Kim has been busy setting up the Men’s Shed administration office from her home, and applying for grants on behalf of the MCMS Inc.

The Mooloolah Community Men’s Shed was Incorporated in 2020 and now has an ABN. The contract for the Shed has been signed by MVCA Inc with Sunshine Sheds & Garages Little Mountain, Sunshine Coast and work will begin at the end of October 2020.

Membership of MCMS Inc. is $50.00 per annum
