The Singhampton Community Centre is community owned and operated. The building was established as a Church. In the 1970s the church closed and sold to the trustees of the Singhampton Memorial Park The building is now part of the not-for-profit Singhampton Community Centre and Park Inc.
Starting as a spiritual centre, “the hall” has continued to be a hub for the Singhampton community. One of the most noted activities has been the annual Ramp Romp, held each spring since 1984 to celebrate wild leeks which appear as the snow disappears in the highland woods around Singhampton. The supper raised funds to establish the local volunteer fire department, which is now part of Clearview Fire Department. The supper also introduced the hall to the wider community around Singhampton. The supper now raises funds to support activities at the building and maintain the building. Over the years, the centre has seen many occasions with family reunions, wedding showers, anniversary parties, wakes and celebrations of life.
The hall has a spacious modern kitchen and many large pots and dishes. It is rented at a reasonable rate for private functions with a capacity of 121, comfortably seating 100. Besides improvements to the kitchen, the hall has refinished floors, “accessible” ramps and large washrooms.
The hall is available as a hub for the community’s public life. This includes public meetings and events like the annual Christmas craft sale. The trustees and the Board represent members of the Singhampton community and volunteer their time to support community. They welcome new members to continue to keep the Singhampton Community Centre active and inclusive.
Accessible and air-conditioned.
