Several years ago, the Centre commenced a long-term oral history project abut the lives and times of older members of the Eden community. To date, volunteers have recorded, transcribed and proofed 85 stories and currently the audio recordings are being enhanced. Ultimately, this project will provide a high quality resource for the broader Eden communit
The Centre also assisted the Eden Timber Workers Memorial Committee. We also enjoy maintaining this website for the community.
The Centre applies for relevant grants and tender opportunities to enhance the services provided to the local community.
The Centre relies heavily on people from the local community as volunteers to progress its work and special projects. If you can provide assistance, or desire to learn new skills while volunteering, please contact us. The Centre readily acknowledges and greatly values the input from all its volunteers.
A Short History of the Eden Access Centre
In September 1999 a Federal Government grant established a Community Access Centre in Eden to enhance access and use of on-line services by the local community. In 2000 the Centre is up and running and on the 30th of November was officially opened by the then Federal Member for Eden-Monaro, Gary Nairn.
In August 2002 the Centre relocated to its present location in the council building on the corner of Imlay and Mitchell Streets. In 2003 new and much needed Centrelink facilities opened in the Access Centre.
Over the past 10 years, the Centre has been a focus for the community and visitors alike. Many locals have learned about computers and the internet through courses run at the Centre, and people from all over the world have availed themselves of the services to contact family and friends back home.
