Community Halls/Facilities

The foyer of the Sheffield Hall and part of the Springston Hall have been temporarily closed after Selwyn District Council received Detailed Engineering Evaluation (DEE) reports on the halls. The Sheffield Hall was closed from this report, but has re-opened except for the entry foyer.  The newer amenities block attached to the main Hall at Springston will not be closed and can remain available for use.

There are a small number of other community facilities which have been closed as a result of earthquake damage. Please check community hall/centre listings for more information on this.
