Unfortunately after several years of use by small community groups, the NT Fire and Rescue Service has decided that this space "is classified as a 7a class building and is not suitable for community events".

Accordingly DCA has ceased using this space for the community and is seeking volunteers to help clean up and remove existing facilities.
