Jack Allen Community House

June 18, 2018

Horowhenua community centre the Jack Allen Community House has reopened in new digs inside Levin's RSA building, on Bristol St.

 

More than six community organisations now operate from the new site in one half of the building, while the RSA continues to operate in the front half.

 

Chairwoman Eleanor Gully says the first phase of a series of refurbishments was complete, and opening celebration was held earlier this month.

 

The previous community house on Durham St was owned by the Horowhenua District

 Council and the land was sold late last year to become the site of a new medical centre.

 

The centre was set up in 1971. It has operated from a series of sites.

 

Jack Allen was a Levin draper well known for helping people find solutions to difficult

situations. Previously, the centre was called Te Whare Mahana – the house of warmth.
