Tracey Crothers is the Manager of the Maghaberry Community Centre, and has lived in village for over 17 years. She was a volunteer with the Maghaberry Community Association before taking up her current position. We hope that you find this website both useful and informative and would welcome your comments and ideas for developing the community centre.
Maghaberry Community Centre officially opened on the 30 June 2009.
This state-of-the-art facility is located on land which was made available by housing developers Lewis and Coulter. The project was funded by the Lisburn City Council, the Rural Development Council for NI and the Maghaberry Community Association.
Young and old residents can use the new community hall for a variety of different programmes. Young people can partake in activities such as the scouts, youth club and judo, whilst our elderly residents have social clubs and activities which run on a weekly basis. There are also men’s health sessions to ensure that the local males keep fit and healthy.
At the end of 2011 a new floodlit Multi-use Games Area (MUGA) was opened at the Maghaberry Community Centre to provide the local community the opportunity to play football and hockey all year round.
A new Adventure Playground was added to the facility in 2013 to give the slightly older children a safe and enjoyable place to play. The park was officially opened at the beginning of July.
The Community Centre was further extended in 2013/2014, with the addition of a new Sports Hall and changing facilities which was officially opened on 21 November 2014 by representatives from Lisburn City Council, the Lagan Rural Partnership and Sport NI, who provided funding for the project.
