Book a Centre

Our Community Centres are shared community spaces and are for hire from residents, community groups and businesses. You can expect to be sharing the kitchen, toilets and hallways at the centres as it is likely that other community groups will also be onsite using other rooms in the facility.

Please note that you can make a booking for our centres by clicking on the rooms below. Please note however your booking has not yet been confirmed and is subject to verification from our booking officer who will contact you within seven business days for your request. Please note that we are not a function centre so are unable to provide an immediate response to your hall query.

The Community Centres and Halls for Hire Fee Schedule outlines costs. Request for regular bookings and bookings for more than one date can be made by completing the Venue Hire Request Form .
