Plans are presently being drawn up by the new committee for improvements to the Centre. It is hoped that renovations will commence immediately after the Fashion Show on 21st November 1996 and will consist primarily of the meeting room areas with proposals for a new floor for the main hall being considered for a later date. The hall is presently being used for a number of sporting and recreational activities, most notably Badminton, Indoor Soccer, Basketball, Keep-Fit, Flower Arranging.
Hall bookings can be made by contacting the Centre at 798371 and there are some vacancies for the current winter season. The Annual Fashion Show takes place on the 21st November. Tickets are now being sold and your support would be greatly appreciated. The committee are pleased to advise that the Centre has been approved for Grant Aid under the Dept.of Education’s Recreational Facilities Scheme and these funds will go towards defraying a portion of the costs of the renovations.
