The Club will close at 4pm on Wednesday 23 December 2015 and reopen on Monday 11 January 2016. Activity groups can continue to use the Club through this period by arrangement with the front office.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy and safe festive season.

Club Maintenance

We are commencing a program of progressively repainting the Club interior starting with Hall 2, which will be painted during the week beginning 11 January 2016. Hall 1 will be painted during the April school holidays.

During 2015 we have completed the replacement of all of the puce vertical blinds throughout the Club. All of the Club’s computers have recently been replaced, and modifications have been made to the cupboards in the kitchen and hall 2 to include more drawers for cups and glasses.

Better Health Services for Older Canberrans

Hughes Community Centre, Wisdom St, Hughes

Capital Health Network is funded by the Commonwealth Government to coordinate primary healthcare services in the ACT.

They want to hear from you about what ACT seniors need from their healthcare services, so they can make sure people receive the right care in the right place at the right time.

Come and share afternoon tea, and take the opportunity to talk to Capital Health Network about what would make the healthcare system work better for you and your family!

RSVP for catering purposes to Jane at COTA (phone 6282 3777 or jthomson).
