Michael Sobell Community Centre

What does it do?

The centre allows members to make friends and socialise, and to participate in a wide range of activities, all supported by a large team of volunteers.

The site has a mini market where members can buy kosher food and gifts, a well stocked library, an activity and art room (with a kiln) and a hairdressing salon, offering manicures and pedicures.  Members can dine in the lively café area and a restaurant that offers three course meals.
