Eccleshall Community Centre
Eccleshall Community Centre, the former Middle School, was purchased by Eccleshall Parish Council in 1993 for community use. The Centre is leased long term to the Eccleshall Community Centre Association for day to day management.
The excellent facilities include several rooms suitable for meetings and various activities. There is a well equipped kitchen and a large hall with a stage for dances, parties and drama productions. Eccleshall Springfields Nursery occupies part of the premises.
The Community Centre Association consists of a group of volunteers and representatives from various user groups, who ensure that the centre is viable and runs smoothly.
The following events are held regularly at the Community Centre – Indoor Bowls, Street Dance, Badminton, Pilates, Yoga, Ornithology classes and Boxercise.
Many groups use the facilities, including Textile and Craft, Katharine House Hospice Group and The Eccleshall Trust also run bingo sessions. The centre is a venue for Eccleshall Singers concerts, monthly meetings of The Historical Society, and many of the Parish Council meetings. Other services held at the centre include doctor’s Flu jabs. We have also hosted cupcake demonstrations, wedding receptions, pantomine, discos and children’s parties.
The Community Centre Association puts on live music and dance, please see the bottom of the page for upcoming events.
If you wish to book the Centre, or enquire about any of the activities please contact Mrs. Libby Dale on 01785 850124, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Centre is well used and very popular, so to avoid disappointment bookings need to be made well in advance.
