Regular events to the centre include aerobics, union meetings, self-help groups, carpet bowling, clinics, church activities, judo classes, youth clubs, the elderly forum, church groups, support groups, carpet bowls, dance classes, lunch clubs and social evenings. There is also a regular clinic held in the centre twice a week.
