Welcome to Hoole Community Centre

Hoole Community Centre provides a practical and safe place for local groups. We hire space for workshops, classes, meetings, children’s activities and family celebrations.

There are over 20 different activities taking place at the moment ranging from activities such as zumba, Yoga, art classes and a variety of dance classes. The community centre has several spaces available for hire, one being a large hall.

Hoole Community Centre has a community cafe which offers homemade, delicious food at affordable prices.  There is a library where you can knit and natter and be part of a book club.  There’s a weekly senior’s club, international coffee morning, IT buddies and a social table tennis afternoon.  All would not be possible without dedicated staff and a team of amazing volunteers.

Our mission is to serve the community today and in the future.
