Community Clubs

Community Clubs are community-led groups and a great place for people with similar interests to get together to share recreational, educational, sports and entertainment activities, events and programs.

We have a broad range of Community Clubs – sport and hobby related. If you enjoy hobbies such as dancing, music, sewing, painting, pottery, photography, gardening, cooking, billiards/pool or board gaming… or if you are interested in more sporty pastimes, such as rugby, cricket, cycling, yoga, horse riding, dragon boat racing or diving, then there is a club for you. For the younger people in our community we have Girl and Boy Scouts and if you are keen on recycling… or just meeting new people, then you can volunteer to help to run the community thrift shop.

See below for more details of some of our community clubs…
