The Marchant Community Centre
The Marchant Community Centre is focused on being a place where individuals can build on their sense of wellbeing, participate in lifelong learning, and explore their creativity.
The Centre has been transformed from a library into a great new community space which offers programs and services to the local community. The Marchant Community Centre is working towards offering a range of short and long-term seasonal programs, directed at all ages and abilities.
If you are interested in running or joining up with one of these groups or courses, please contact the Centre on 8366 9235.
Campbelltown City Council is proud to announce that in recognition of Mr James Marchant and his family, the Athelstone Community Centre at 338 Gorge Road, Athelstone (formerly the Athelstone Library) has been renamed The Marchant Community Centre.
It is Council’s understanding that for more than 100 years the Marchant family operated the store opposite the Community Centre on the corner of Russell and Gorge Roads and the area there was known as Marchant’s Corner.
Our information suggests that Mr James Marchant constructed the store in that location in 1854 and it remained in the ownership and operation of the family until at least the late 1960s.
