The Parksville Community Centre Society (PCCS) says it will again host events at a new facility on Mills Street.

The building will be used to host business meetings, trade shows, educational seminars, sporting events, club gatherings, cultural events and concerts as early as this month, according to a media release by the society.

“The 223 Mills Street facility will make available six large rooms between 600 and 850 square feet, which can be rented individually or together. There will also be available eight smaller offices that will be available for hourly, daily, weekly or monthly rentals,” the release reads.

The society is also looking at renting outdoor and indoor furniture, such as tables, chairs, risers, podiums and coat racks, as well as banquet rentals including linens, dish ware and cutlery, the release said.

PCCS said is has partnered with local restaurants and bistros to offer of-site catering for events.

It will take time to fully clean and prepare new facility — the society has invited community members to volunteer time and resources to the new centre’s cleanup.

“We know this will happen because many Parksville citizens and local businesses came together in 1948 and in 2001, volunteering time and donating funds to create the previous two centres and we hope you will join us once again to show your Parksville pride so we can once again provide a community Gathering Space,” the society said in the release.

The PCCS board’s mandate is to ensure the centre continues to drive social and economic activity within the local community and encourage participation from all sectors, public, private, business and government.

The PCCS no longer operates the Parksville Community Centre (PCC) located at 132 Jensen Avenue, after council decided not to renew the PCCS’ operating agreement.
