HALL CLEANING – a new approach to make it easier:  All Community Centre hire agreements include a requirement for those hiring the facilities to clean the hall after using it, ready for the next users. For anyone feeling stretched for the time or energy to clean up afterwards, we are now able to put you in contact with cleaners you can employ to do the clean-up for you. Please note that whether you decide to do it yourself or to employ others, cleaning is the responsibility of the hirer.

Hall users can contact the following cleaners to arrange employment for regular, or one-off, cleaning of Community Centre facilities:

  • Shukuru – 027 384 5052
  • Amber – 022 590 9300 

If you would like to be employed as a cleaner by those who hire the Community Centre, please email to have your details added to this list.
