Migrant and Refugee Welcome Tree and Bench

Date: 
29 Mar 2017

Thousands of messages of welcome from the Manningham community have been collected over the past few years following Manningham being declared a Migrant and Refugee Welcome Zone. These messages have now been engraved onto a welcome bench recently installed adjacent to the MC² Civic Plaza stairs
 

A gum tree has also been planted in the garden bed next to the seat and it is hoped that Manningham residents will meet ‘by the Welcome Tree’, sit on the new timber seat and enjoy this public space.
