Our Club

The Castle Hill Senior Citizens Club has been in existence for more than 50 years.

The club commenced in 1970 with five members, meeting under the back of the old Council Chambers on Old Northern Road. That building was later demolished to make way for The Piazza at Castle Towers Shopping Centre.

When the membership increased to 10 members, a Management Committee was formed with Daisy Mulligan as President – a position she held for over 12 years.

In 1973-74, the club moved to the Castle Hill Community Centre, which then was located in Arthur Whitling Park, Castle Hill. That Community Centre building has also since been demolished to make way for the Castle Hill Metro Railway Station.

The club moved to the new building at 2 McMullen Avenue, Castle Hill, in September 1983. ‘The Hills and Northern Mercury’ of Tuesday 22 March 1983 states that the building was expected to be completed in six months and would also house a baby health centre. The project cost $400,000, which consisted of a Federal Government grant of $300,000 and the remaining $100,000 being provided by the local council, Baulkham Hills Shire Council, as it was then known. The current Hills Shire Council continues to maintain the premises.

Throughout this time the Club has provided a meeting place for senior residents of the area where they can socialise, meet new friends and take part in activities providing physical exercise and mental stimulation.

Our members range in age from their 60s to over 90 but age is no barrier to having fun with friends in a welcoming social environment.
