Clubs in the Warkworth area have been invited to consider meeting at the Senior Citizens/Warkworth Bridge Club rooms in Alnwick Street, beside the Town Hall.
Bridge Club president Jenny Robinson says there is plenty of scope for a variety of clubs to use the rooms, which include bathroom facilities and a kitchen.
“The charge is minimal because we are more interested in seeing the rooms used,” Jenny says.
Auckland Council owns the building and in two years the lease will come up for renewal.
“It will be important for Council to see that it is a facility that is well-used.”
As well as the Bridge Club and the Senior Citizens, other users of the rooms include the Mah Jong Club and a scrapbooking group. This year, the North Rodney Community Arts Council will also be utilising the space for meetings, workshops and exhibitions.
Meanwhile, the Bridge Club will host its annual tournament, sponsored by New World Warkworth and Leigh Fisheries, at the end of this month.
The club currently has 110 members and has been going for nearly 50 years.
The annual January tournament draws players from all over Auckland and Northland.
