The Guru Nanak Sikh Gurudwara Temple, through donations from the congregation, has pledged $100,000 towards the project.

“Over the past decade the Woolgoolga community has been planning and working towards the establishment of a Multi-Purpose Centre to cater for the community needs,” President of the Guru Nanak Sikh Temple in Woolgoolga, Harinder Singh Sohi, told News Of The Area.

“Eventually all levels of government supported the project that is now nearing completion.

“The Sikh community has been active members in the planning and design of the Wiilgulga Multi-Purpose facility to tailor the Centre to meet local Sikh community needs and events such as cultural events, wedding receptions and Sikh sports carnivals,” he said.

Many local organisations have pledged funds to firstly secure Government funding and to deliver a community friendly centre.

“Additions such as a large commercial kitchen for catering, large LCD display screens, kids playground, pump track and various equipment have been driven by community donations.

“Coffs City Mayor Paul Amos kindly attended the Gurudwara to receive the first $50,000 payment from the Gurudwara Committee and Trustee members on behalf of the congregation,” said Mr Singh Sohi.

“The community believes that this will be a great asset for the wider community and our youth and a much-needed indoor centre for the Northern Beaches,” he said.


Committee and Trustee members of Gurudwara Temple, on behalf of the congregation, joined by Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh, presented a cheque of $50,000 to CHCC Mayor Paul Amos for Wiilgulga Multi-Purpose Centre.
