We are proud to be working at the heart of our local community, providing a number of important support initiatives for local residents. 
If you are interested in helping out, please contact us for more details. 
We want to support and inspire residents to connect, develop and gain confidence by providing opportunities at our community hub. Our aim is that these interactions will help to create a healthy, happy, successful, and thriving community. 
The background 
In recent years, our community centre has grown from a centre that provides predominantly class-based activities to a community hub. This is a transitional process, and we have tried to adapt as quickly as possible. We now provide the Freezer of Love and a Give and Take but we know from listening to you that you want much more. 
Community Centre Revamp 
We have therefore ignited a project that aims to revamp the centre to make the space more beautiful, dynamic, sustainable and accessible (inside and out). 
We hope the space can include: 
A community café 
A youth group/opportunities for young people and children to participate in a range of activities. 
Art groups 
Therapeutic groups 
Pantomimes/shows/music nights/community choir 
Upskilling workshops such as IT, first aid, cooking, sewing, etc.

Where We Are 
So far, we have had three meetings, managed to engage a fantastic project officer to lead the project (huge thank you to the parish council!), we have had advice from organisations and individuals who have been successful in similar projects and we know what we need to do… 
It starts with you! 
We have now started a formal community consultation to gather your feedback so that this can be used to apply for funding to make our community dreams a reality. The consultation will be tailored to different groups of people and feedback can be given in multiple ways from face-to-face at advertised open days, Facebook polls, facilitated workshops and more. 
It’s a big project, and the more passionate people able to lend a hand will help to ensure the project is a success! 
There will be lots of opportunities to also give your opinions face-to-face. In the meantime, here is the link to our very short online survey which we'd love you to complete.
