The Centre was officially opened in 1988 by Princess Anne and ran successfully for many years. In 2010 it was closed for refurbishment and was re-opened by Linvoy Primus in 2011. The Havelock is now a modern centre with a wide variety of activities and options for hire available. Our goal is to improve the opportunities available for the people in our community by providing help, support, services and facilities.

We are a non-profit charity, therefore all profits are put back into the Centre. This enables us to manage the ongoing costs of the building and make improvements.

The community centre is managed by a volunteer management committee who are elected at the AGM each November.
