Renovation of the Netherton Community Centre – Update

The community centre will undergo a massive renovation in 2018.  We have been told that work will commence in March/April 2018.  That means extensive work will be carried out over a period of several months.

We have been told that our taekwondo centre will not be affected by the changes and there will be no periods we are closed.  However, it may mean that some work will be carried out during this period and we apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused.  We will keep everyone up to date as and when we find out.
