Ongar Community Centre


About our centre

Ongar Community Centre is open seven days a week depending on demand and can cater for a range of activities. We are eager to work with new and emerging groups. We work with a wide range of community groups and organisations and run activities such as Summer and Easter camps and an annual family day with the Ongar Development Group.
We want the centre to be a positive hub for the community allowing everyone to take part in:

  • sport
  • leisure
  • community development
  • educational and recreational activities

For more information, feel free to call or visit. 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.
