Arts centre cuts hours


THE Riverton Community Arts Centre now has reduced hours.

Chairman Wayne Hill said it was due to a combination of the Covid-19 alert levels and a lack of volunteers.

“There are not enough volunteers for it to be open five days a week, so for the current exhibition [Taiao Art Exhibition], it will open on Saturdays and Sundays, 11am-4pm.”

Hill said he would stand down as the chairman at the arts centre’s annual meeting on Tuesday.

Expressions of interest for the positions of chairman, treasurer, secretary and for more volunteers would be appreciated at the meeting being held at the centre, beginning at 7pm, he said.Sportswear DesignNEW BALANCE
