Welcome to our February newsletter.
It’s that time of the year when the Trustees can plan to undertake some essential maintenance at the Centre with one key task being to re-sand and seal the main hall floor which was last carried out over 5 years ago. As a result, the main hall will not be available for use during the February half term – week commencing 17th February, large meeting room activities will continue to take place. We would like to apologise to both our hirers and users for this inconvenience, however it is an essential piece of maintenance and will ensure a significant improvement to the condition of the floor surface not only for users but also for cleaning purposes. In addition, during this week we will be pruning the large tree within the garden area as well as carrying out our 6 monthly programme of essential planned maintenance.
We continue to work with the local authority regarding the release of Section 106 funding towards the associated costs for the building extension design and planning approval process and are hopeful of being in a position in the coming weeks to advise you of our forward plans for this important Community project. We now have 27 regular hirers using the Community Centre and as a result have very limited availability for this much sought after venue. We continue to explore all funding streams to generate the finances needed to enable additional facilities to be created.
This is a good time to start planning for your child’s 2020 party event. The Centre attracts many requests for the hire of our facilities for a range of themed birthday party events throughout the year and in particular during the warmer months when the outdoor secure garden is available. Our website www.chellastonca.org displays a what’s on calendar for 2020 so you can easily check to see whether a particular weekend date is available. We currently keep Saturday all day free and Sunday afternoon for one off hire events. You can enquire on line or by calling our bookings secretary on 07895386433. Our website provides details of our pricing structure, a frequently asked questions page and also pictures of our facilities. Book early to avoid disappointment, a deposit will secure your date.
