Grow your Mo for Men’s Health Month

There are so many ways that you can get involved in supporting Men’s Health Month, from growing your mo, hosting an event to raise funds for an important cause, having a morning tea to bring awareness to men’s health issues or simply touch base with someone you haven’t seen in a while and ask how they are.

Join us as we grow our Mo’s and show our support for Prostate Cancer this month.

 Entrance area nears completion

What a fantastic job the tradesman have done to get our new entrance and gym doors installed, as we are nearing the plastering and finishing stages of the project.  It has taken a little longer than expected due to unforeseen circumstances but we are loving the progress and the new look and we hope you do to.  A huge thank you to everyone who has been a part of the project and to all our members, staff and families who have been flexible and accommodating throughout the process.  You’re amazing.

Muddy boots

This time of year brings with it a mixture of muddy and wet footwear.  We understand that this can not be helped at times, but do ask that you respect our facilities by removing wet and dirty footwear prior to entering our facilities.

We want to keep the YMCA a clean and safe place for everyone, including you.

Thank you for your co-operation.
