Hiring a Council Facility 

The Shire of Northam has a number of facilities available for hire. The fees vary depending on the activity to be conducted, and are set annually by Council. In most cases, a bond will be required to be paid and is refundable on the basis that the facility is in the same condition as it was, prior to hire, i.e. It must be clean and tidied.
