Scullin Traders

In a speech in the Assembly today, I congratulated the Scullin Community Group on the launch of their enterprise hub, Scullin Traders. The group started up in October last year determined to transform the struggling local shops. In seven months, they have set up street libraries, introduced Tuesday night social soccer, and designed an installed a community noticeboard, amongst other things.

Now they have launched a pop-up store by leasing the front half of the wholesale bakery at Scullin Shops. It sells bread, milk, and other basics but also sublets space to micro-traders selling fresh flowers, jewellery, soaps, and ceramics. Café Bolivar has opened a second coffee van outside, and coworking desks are available for hire. The enterprise is run entirely by volunteers.

Small businesses are integral to the wellbeing of our community, and I wish great success to everyone involved with Scullin Traders.
