About our centre
Blakestown Community Centre is open seven days depending on demand and can cater for a wide range of activities, so there will be something to interest you.
We want the centre to be a positive hub for the community allowing everyone to take part in:
- community development
- educational and recreational activities
Feel free to call in for a cup of tea and pick up a time-table and see what activities are taking place. We will show you how to book-in for activities. Don’t be afraid to try out an event or class for the first time.
