All other community facilities including halls and cottages will reopen in 2021.

Community are reminded of the government restrictions and physical distancing requirements of 1.5 meters are in place and density quotas apply at each community facility as per government restrictions.

Re-opening of facilities will NOT include casual bookings until 2021 for social activities such as parties, celebrations, due to limited numbers allowed in spaces.

ONGOING COMMUNITY SUPPORT AND FOOD RELIEF

Even with the low daily case numbers and real progress made over recent weeks, Council recognises that there is still a need in our local communities for ongoing support and food relief.

As such, Council’s Community Connector Hubs will continue to respond to community needs and deliver elements of the Hub services, like food relief, social connection, service referrals and job readiness programs. To find your closest Community Connector Hub, click here.
