      Visiting the Community Centre

      Victorians must use common sense and consideration when it comes to their activities during these difficult times.

      Visitors to the Ballan Community Centre must make themselves aware of the current restrictions in effect and observe the appropriate social distancing and sanitizing regimes that are currently in place for the benefit and protection of all who use the centre.

      Check notices when entering the facilty to confirm if face masks are  currently required in the Community House. Face masks continue to be mandatory in some locations, unless a lawful reason not to wear one applies.

      You must always carry a face mask with you when you leave home unless you have a lawful reason not to.

      While the Community House office is currently operating under normal office hours by our indispensable staff and volunteers we are also readily contactable by phone and email.
