Arts and Culture

Like many arts venues and theatre companies across the globe, Council has taken the precautionary decision to close a number of arts and culture venues.

  • Kimbriki Resource Recovery Centre remains open 7am to 5pm every day. Any changes to opening hours or operations will be published on the website and residents should check before travelling to Kimbriki.

All Childcare Centres, Pre Schools, Occasional Care and Family Day Care centres are open and operating normal days and hours.

We are intentionally teaching and actively promoting correct hygiene practices at every opportunity with the children.

We have increased the cleaning regimes within our services and will be removing sensory play experiences such as playdough to further reduce risks.

Vacation Care will go ahead in the October School Holidays, but we have adopted social distancing measures within the community including cancelling excursions, travel, and some events such as incursions.


In line with Government advice, our burial services will continue but they are limited to 100 people following the one person per 4 square metre rule or in family household groups with social distancing of 1.5 metres apart. View the latest COVID-19 updates.
