Community groups have a choice of 17 buildings in which to hold meetings, events, indoor sports and social functions. Many of these buildings are War Memorial halls or historic buildings. Council owns and maintains 12 of these.
The capacity of the halls varies from 10 to 300 people (seated), and letting fees range from no charge to $100 depending on the purpose and length of time required.
Most halls are equipped with tables, chairs, kitchen facilities, and have accessible on-site or adjacent car parking.
