About our centre
Applewood Community Centre is open seven days a week and we are always looking for new ideas for activities and events. We want the centre to be a positive hub for the community allowing everyone to take part in:
• community development
• educational and recreational activities
For more information, feel free to call or visit and we will give you a timetable and show you how to book-in for activities. We always welcome new people getting involved so we can build a better community for all.
