What's been happening at the Studley Green Community Centre?
Following the last AGM in May 2015, when the previous Committee resigned after many years in post, a new Committee was formed. Mostly made up of local people, some have become Trustees to act as a Management Committee to take the venue into the next phase.
The hall is currently going through a renovation process, and the main hall has been re-painted and the floor re-polished. It was looking very tired with no polish left, but now it has been restored to its former glory and we intend to maintain it at this level of quality.
Further improvements are planned. A disabled cloakroom, funded by the Freemasons, will be installed in March this year, in order to enable people with mobility problems to participate in our activities. Cladding on the exterior to keep the building watertight, will take place shortly and we plan to install new windows in the main hall later this year. Further painting of the other rooms in the Centre will be done as soon as possible. The new Committee is working hard to bring the building up to scratch again.
Many local residents are unaware of what goes on at the Community Centre, but there are three Art Groups that meet weekly on different days, a Mother and Toddler Group, a Youth Club, a monthly Coffee Morning, a Concert Band that meets weekly to practise, a Morris Dance troop that come to practise, and of course, a Christian Fellowship that meets every Friday evening and Sunday morning. The Beacons Bottom Football Club meet on the playing field and the information they have given on this website, is extremely interesting to read. Please see the Activities page and contact details of the organisers, if you would like to join any of these sessions.
We are also holding regular social events again: quiz evenings, pop-up pubs, Christmas and summer bazaars and from now on, will feature on our web-site. We can also take bookings in the hall for children's parties and business meetings. A small meeting room, "The Kite's Nest", is also available for small group meetings.
We therefore hope that by browsing our new website, you will find more about what goes on in the Centre and be inclined to join our activities and social events.
We operate as a registered charity (No. 1089525).
