Granite Belt Support Services building now open

SHOW and tell was the theme of the day when Granite Belt Support Services opened its doors to the community last week.

Respite and day services manager Therese Crisp said the open day on Saturday was GBSS's chance to invite the community to what all the new building fuss had been about.

"The Stanthorpe community and clubs have been so generous in donating to our building fund over the last seven years," she said.

"This was our way to say come and see what you helped us build."

Mrs Crisp said they did not want to wait any longer for the community to be able to come and see it, and neither did the community.

"We had over 80 people come on Saturday - it was wonderful to see that many people come through," she said.

"It was a cross-section of the community from school kids, to existing families and community members.

"It was also a chance for the clients to show their families around.

"We still have an open invitation to anyone who couldn't make it but would like to - just give us a call so we can make sure we have someone available to show you around."

The official opening will be held in early 2014.
