The Community Centre Committee is delighted to announce a number of major investments in the Centre, creating improvements that will ensure that the Centre continues to provide the highest level of accessibility and comfort for all users.

The high level of usage has helped the Committee accumulate a significant amount of funds of which a large amount is ear-marked for Centre improvements. In November the worn foyer carpets are to be replaced, and in December, there will be major renovations made to the Hall floor. This comes after major improvements were made earlier in the year to the Hall ceiling and the window blinds.

A substantial investment is being made by CW&C, replacing the old, indeed original, oil central heating boilers with energy efficient gas boilers. Gas will also power the hot water system which should be much more reliable than the current electrical system, powered by immersion heaters, that is prone to regular breakdowns. The contractors have met the Committee and have promised only minimal disruption despite having to bring the gas supply on site. Perhaps more importantly, they will provide mobile heaters for the three days when the Centre will be without central heating!

Vice-Chair Sue Hardacre says "We are delighted that CW&C are able to invest in updating the heating system. The building is a major asset to the Council, both as a Community Centre and as an office for their professional Staff. With our own funds we will continue to look at ways of making the space work best for all the users. We are already thinking about how we may be able to utilise the space where the oil tank is now housed"

The Committee is confident that there will be little inconvenience to users, but if anyone has concerns they should email the Booking Secretary on
