Hidden Gem – Westvale Community Centre

If you haven’t already visited Westvale Community Centre in St Albans, you’ve probably noticed it on your travels along Kings Road.

The centre - commonly known as ‘The White House’ to locals – was actually once a dairy farm.

Today it’s a thriving, popular community centre surrounded by beautiful grounds including community gardens, where community members grow their own fruit and vegetables.

Offering everything from a Men’s Shed, to an outdoor kitchen, computer room and program rooms, Westvale Community Centre has something to suit pretty much everyone.

Programs offered at Westvale include computer classes, walking groups, school holiday programs, cooking classes, playgroups, women’s groups, after-hours learning for school students, and Men’s Shed activities.

Want an excuse to visit? You don’t need one. Drop in anytime during opening hours to say hello and have a look around, or you could come along to the We Are Brimbank Festival on 21 March 2020.

As part of Council’s Cultural Diversity Week, Westvale Community Centre will host the festival from 11am to 2pm complete with cultural performances, cooking demonstrations, a coffee ceremony, cultural stalls and food tasting, children’s activities and a community barbecue.

Westvale Community Centre is at 45 Kings Road, St Albans.
