Whyke community centre plans

PLANS for a community centre in Whyke will be unveiled at a meeting on Monday (December 9).

The new centre will provide a community hub where people can access services including advice, social and physical activities, but also a meeting place, including a community cafe.

Whyke Estate Community Association set up a steering group which has been making plans for the centre for the past two years

Steering group chairman Steve Taylor said: “With more and more services being withdrawn by local councils, the local community has a greater need than ever to have a place to develop a better support network for residents, and to have a community hub where people can get together and develop a greater sense of community spirit.”

The association raised more than £6,000 for research into where to site the centre. Residents can hear its conclusions at the meeting at 7pm in Kingsham Primary School’s main hall.
