    Hall set up for private function

This post-war, wooden building is available for regular groups or private functions.

The large hall has a sprung wooden floor suitable for dancing. Trestle tables and 90-conference-style chairs make the hall suitable for large gatherings.

The kitchen has basic equipment and a domestic stove.

The Whataitai Room seats six people, board room style. The lounge is suitable for informal small meetings.

A major renovation will mean the centre is closed for several months, probably in late 2021.
