After many long years of planning and coordination - V Swans, the Swan Districts Football Club along with long-time Program Partner - Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project, have officially opened the doors of the Powerhouse Youth & Community Centre to the Onslow community.

The centres grand opening was held on Saturday 2 December with a heap of fun family activities on offer including cupcake decorating, a community mural, face painting and even a spit roast lunch. A big thank you to - Horizon Power for funding the Powerhouse Onslow Youth & Community Centre opening, which was a great event and big success for V Swans and the local Onslow Community.
