The Hollingwood Residents Association committee has now taken over the running of the “The Elders” building on Laburnum Street from the former Elders committee for use by, and for, the local community.

The Toddlers group and the Solo club will continue to meet there, but HRA will be opening it up to bookings for parties and meetings in the near future and  hope to obtain grants to refurbish the kitchen and flooring and to re-decorate in due course.They will shortly be setting up a contact number for taking bookings.
