COVID-19 information

Restrictions and safety

Council is in the process of reopening its community centres and facilities to existing community hirers in line with NSW Health advice.

Due to restrictions, venues have a reduced capacity of two square metres for each person. NSW Government restrictions continue to apply to some activities.

Council staff will work directly with regular hirers to reconfirm or amend bookings which were temporarily on hold. Hirers will need to provide a COVID-19 safety plan for their activity for Council's approval, and sign an amended booking agreement before activities can resume.

For bookings enquiries, email bookingsteam@innerwest.nsw.gov.au or phone 9392 5000 and ask to be put through to the Venues Booking Team.

Herb Greedy Hall is located on Petersham Road and situated under the shadow of the spire of the nearby St. Clements Church. The hall was officially opened on 25 November 1961 and was renamed in memory of an alderman who served on Marrickville Council during the 1960s, Herbert ("Herb") Greedy.

Herb Greedy Hall is a generous community space ideal for community gatherings and parties. A short walk away from Marrickville Town Hall, Herb Greedy is also usable as a spill out space for workshopping and training at larger events and conferences.
