Community Centre

Harold Hawthorne Community Centre is open weekdays to people of all ages who come to enjoy one or many of our regular activities. Perhaps a quiet place to check out our library and read a book, a free game of snooker or for an affordable home-style meal. There are regular health and well-being based sessions and a dedicated Computer Lounge.

We also have a busy events calendar with regular themed luncheons and live entertainment.

There is something for everyone at the Centre. Why not make it your local community hub today!
