Bluff Service Centre is temporarily on the move!

The demolition of the building adjacent to the centre is starting soon, so to ensure everyone’s safety and to remain open, we’ll be temporarily relocating the centre to the Bluff Town Hall.
The Service Centre and Library will close at noon on Thursday 28 March and for Good Friday, but will open on Saturday 30 March from 10am to 7pm, with NZ Post available until 1.30pm.
It will then close for Easter Sunday, Easter Monday and Southland Anniversary Day, then reopen at noon on Wednesday 3 April in the Bluff Town Hall
All Council services and library book deliveries will remain available, and some NZ Post services will be available, but unfortunately Kiwibank and Lotto services will not be available during this time.
We’re hoping this shift will last about two weeks, but we’ll update you on this as soon as possible
