CENTRE CLOSURE AND RE-OPEN DATES: We will close on Wednesday 22nd December 2021 and

re-open on Wednesday 12th January 2022. We wish you all a safe and happy holiday season and we look forward to seeing you all in the New Year! 

Dear Centre Users,


Great News! We are delighted to announce that we will be re-opening the Blockhouse Bay Community Centre on Monday 6th December. WE WILL BE OPERATING AS A VACCINE MANDATED FACILITY while we are at Red Traffic Light. A valid vaccine passport will be required to enter the facility.


While we appreciate the mixed views out there around the mandate, for us to operate with unvaccinated people in the centre, requires a level of deep cleaning and policing that is beyond our capability. This is the safest way to open, for the majority of our users. We will update you as we move our way through the traffic light system. Thank you for your support and understanding.


Although the rules around Centre usage have changed, we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible over the coming weeks and months.
