Centre Update 14 December 2020

The Recreation Centre will be operating with the current restrictions into next year. At the commencement of Term 1 2021 the Centre will activate all memberships that were suspended in 2020. Members are asked to contact the Centre to confirm their membership status.

The Lap Booking system will also remain in place. Our operating hours will still be limited, and sessions may vary from week to week, we ask for our members understanding as we attempt to maximise opportunities for everyone.

Given the restricted hours of operation that we expect to become our new normal, we have developed more flexible memberships for 2021 and beyond.
