Our Temporary Community centre was established on site early in 2012 after the demise of the Mt Pleasant War Memorial Community Centre following the February 22nd 2011 and subsequent earthquakes.
This popular, sunny facility is classroom size and holds up to 50 people seated. It can be used for small meetings and workshops as well as for social gatherings like birthday parties. It does not have full kitchen facilities though a microwave, pie warmer, electric kettle, urn, and crockery are available for use (see conditions of hire). A disabled sized port-a-loo stands alongside the building as our only toilet facilities.
Please contact us to discuss your requirements and to make a booking coordinator@mpcc.org.nz or 03 384 1656 during office hours or after hours 64 03 384 2160.
