What’s Happening at WIRAC over Spring & Summer 2019

So Winter draws to a close and Spring is upon us. With the warmer months comes the busy season for the Centre and we do appreciate our members and users patience as we conclude not just our massive renovation project (the Heat Pump Project) but also the reduced hours over the cooler months.

We will be moving back to longer hours of operation during September and October and these hours are listed alongside this text on the web page. We have some new programs and services starting and these are listed below. Please check in with reception at the Centre for further details about these listed activities

We are also holding a special Big Q Basketball tournament on the weekend of the 19/20 October.
