MURWILLUMBAH'S Community Centre staff will get to celebrate the opening of their $3.1 million project.

Richmond MP Justine Elliot will do the honours this coming Saturday at the centre in Knox Park.

Mrs Elliott said she had "promised, committed and delivered $2 million of federal government funding towards the construction of the $3.1 million Community Centre."

"This is a great community victory and I'm so proud as the local MP to be delivering on my $2 million election commitment for this project," she said.

"The opening of the Community Centre shows how much we can achieve when all work together."

She recently spoke in federal parliament about how important the Murwillumbah Community Centre is to the Tweed area.

Other funding for the centre came from Tweed Shire Council, the Lions Club of Murwillumbah and the NSW government's Community Building Partnerships.
