A community information hub has been established at the RFS Molonglo Brigade today to provide charging stations, ice for eskies, a skip to dispose food waste and incident information for those affected by the ongoing storm response across the Belconnen region.

The hub will be open from 5:00pm-9:00pm, 5th January, 2022 and from 11:00am-5:00pm on the 6th Jan.
