Security Code Change and Volunteer Training

October 9, 2018 | Posted in Cook premises, What's On | By


The codes to arm and disarm the security for our room will be changing in mid to late December.

The lovely volunteers who take responsibility for opening and closing the room for our many get togethers will be notified of the new codes either at the Volunteers Supper being planned in the next few weeks or via an email.

BUT please note only ‘trained’ volunteers will be notified.  These are people who have been through a familiarisation session on how to arm/disarm the security, and what responsibility they take on by volunteering to help take care of our room.   This is not onerous but such things as who to call and where to go in case of an emergency evacuation are important to know.


If you want to volunteer but haven’t been trained or you need a refresher Helen Rose has scheduled two separate sessions:

  1. Tuesday 13 November at 7:30pm and
  2. Thursday 22 November at 5:00pm.

These will each take about 1 hour.  Please contact Helen via email or on 0410 170 176 if you want to attend.  If these times don’t suit you please contact Helen and another arrangement can be made.

If you know the whereabouts of these poor unfortunates please report in or arrange their return. No reward offered, just our grateful thanks.

Starts today: resurfacing the back car park at Cook Community Hub

June 2, 2014 | Posted in Cook premises | By

Canberra Quilters are reminded that the resurfacing of the car park at the Cook Community Hub starts TODAY, Monday 2 June until Thursday 5 June.

The Community Services Directorate have advised the following:

To ensure the long term life and durability of the car park, Community Services Directorate has engaged a company to resurfase the car park with hot asphalt (which is also known as hot-mix). The use of asphalt will provide a far superior surface in the car park, as well as extend the life of the car parking area as a whole.

The resurfacing works will take 3 days to complete, and during this time there will be NO ACCESS to the car park. While the asphalt is being laid, the machinery used is noisy and the materials can smell bad. Also there will be large trucks driving in and out of Ellis street to deliver materials to the site.

The works will commence on Monday 2 June and go through until Thursday 5 June 2014, weather permitting.

Attached is a map outlining the area being resurfaced and alternative parking arrangements.
