Morrison's House Closure at Mt Evelyn

The Shire of Yarra Ranges has issued the following statement regarding the Morrison's House closure in Mt Evelyn.


Yarra Ranges Council was saddened to learn that the Board of Morrisons has determined to cease operations as of 30 April 2014.

Yarra Ranges Director Social and Economic Development Ali Wastie said since Morrisons establishment in 1975, it had become a well respected community education provider.

“Morrisons has a proud history of offering quality learning and engagement opportunities for our community,” Ms Wastie said.

“Over the years Council has enjoyed a strong partnership with Morrisons to deliver a range of programs and activities that support life long learning and social inclusion,” she said.

Ms Wastie said Morrisons would be sadly missed by community members when it closed in April.

“We understand there will be a disruption to services currently offered by Morrisons.

“Council officers will continue to engage with Morrisons, the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, the Department of Human Services and other community organisations to help minimise any impact on the community.”

At the moment the Community Reading Room at the Station House will continue to operate as normal.
