Bid for a community centre

Volunteers are needed to guarantee the long term future of East Community Centre in Eastfield and Southfields Community Centre in Stanground.

Each of the centres would need to be operated as a social enterprise by a constituted group who would be responsible for overall management, including arranging bookings for groups, events and parties and generating a profit sufficient to cover day to day running costs and on-going repairs and maintenance.
