The new Mary O’Dea Community Centre replaces a transportable schoolroom which was used for gatherings these past 40 years or so. This building had deteriorated over time and its asbestos walls were also of concern. The new centre was erected by Hughes Construction and its interior was painted by a hard-working team of volunteers with generous financial support from a number of benefactors. Built on a cement slab with timber framing and clad with Hardiplank weatherboard and aluminium frame windows, it comprises one large room with a kitchen in one corner and two toilets, one of which is for disabled people. Rocks in front of the centre were excavated to make way for the new building and one of these will bear a commemorative plaque, to be unveiled in the ceremony.
Application for the use of the Community centre must be made through the parish office on 83391608 or email@example.com
