Contact any one of the board members or
We are always open to new community activities, new volunteers and love to hear about your great ideas!

Is the heating issue resolved at the Gorge Hall? I heard it was always cold and having a yoga or dance class is not a good idea as it is always cold in there.

How do I find out what activities/events are happening in Whaletown?

Most of the activities and events are advertised both on Tideline and Facebook. We post most community events on Gorge Hall Facebook group. There is also an up-to-date calendar on our website:
