East Creek Community Centre will be required to relocate to a new premises during the estimated 3-4 months of construction, during which some services may be temporary unavailable.

As of the end March 2018, we are scheduled to relocate to the old 'Regents on the Lake' building at 87 Perth St (opposite Lake Annand) on the 23rd April 2018.

Services Likely to Be Delayed

Computer Lessons - Temporarily halting from 9th April 2018, Estimated Return Time Approximately 2nd May 2018.

Please keep in mind that either of the aforementioned timeframes may or may not be altered as the date of commencement draws nearer due to factors beyond our control (ie, moving services).

A Word from Sally

Hello Everyone,

Well we have had an exciting year so far, we have moved (or should have at the time of printing if past the 23rd April) into our temporary premises whilst renovations are underway at 43 Kitchener St. If you are looking for us we have moved just up the road to Regents on the Lake situated at 87-89 Perth St. There will be a few disruptions whilst moving is underway and our computer lessons may be on hold until all of our internet is back up and going smoothly. We will try to get everything running back to normal as soon as possible. Our playgroup will be held at the library during this time, and will move once again back to Thursdays. So pop in for a visit and a cuppa whilst we are here!

When we move back we will be having a party to celebrate, not only the new renovations but also the fact that we turned 30 years old this year. Stay tuned to find out exactly what date this is happening. Rumour has it that there will be an 80’s theme event to celebrate the date we first became an incorporated neighbourhood centre, on 10th of March 1988. A bit of nostalgia the number one song that week was Kylie Minogue with “I should be so lucky”. So dig out your puff skirts, spiral perms and 80’s gear and we will let you know when it is happening…

Our biggest cuppa is on once again, join us at our new address on May 24th for a fun morning to raise awareness and funds for cancer. We will be having a guest speaker, raffles and a fabulous morning tea. It will start at 10.30 am (Regents has great heating too so we will be nice and warm!), and everyone is welcome.

Also as a note we now have another number you can contact on apart from our 4639 2755, you can also call us on 4639 2038 if the other number is busy.
