Community Notice
22 April 2020

A State of Emergency has been declared in Victoria due to the risks posed by Coronavirus (COVID-19). Stage 3 restrictions are in place.

Therefore the Board, the Management and the participants have voted to suspend the many activities held at the Community House until the threat of the rapid spread of the virus is halted and the Government announces that it is safe to meet and congregate in group activities

However, from the 20 April, the Community House Office is being staffed by our indispensable volunteers and Staff. We are contactable by phone and email.

We regret that the following groups will not hold activities & courses at the House during Term 2

Ballan Community Art Group

Sewing Drop-in Group

Ballan Community Crafters

Speciality Quilt Course


Cards for all Occasions

Drawing and Painting for Children

The Ballan & District Men’s Program

Book Discussion Club

The Ballan Film Society

The Garden Group

Bush Walking for Leisure

However, the House is in the process of preparing some short online courses with the tutors, where this is possible. We hope you will be interested in enrolling in these Art & Craft and Health and Wellbeing courses that we envisage will run for the last four weeks of Term 2 and beyond, if the enforced physical distancing restrictions are still in place

Current interruptions to services at Your Community Centre due to the Government’s Stage 3 restrictions:

  • The Mechanics’ Institute has been closed for all public gatherings and meetings. Therefore, Room hire is not possible at this time
  • The Moorabool Library is closed until further notice. Please refer to the Moorabool Shire webpage for revised Library hours and activities 
  • Public Access to the computer hub is suspended
  • All physical courses are currently postponed

While the Community House Office is closed to the public  we are contactable via phone (03) 5368 1934 or email during our usual office hours and if you are interested in enrolling in the online courses as they become available or any of the exciting new courses listed on our interim program.
