Preston Road Community Centre


Preston Road Community Centre was first opened in 1974 thanks to the great efforts of the Thameside Residents Association some of whom I have met while canvassing. They each gave some money to get it built. It is still going strong as a charity managed by volunteers. I am one of three trustees (we are looking for more) and serve as honorary secretary, and help at the bingo. The centre is well used and is available for hire for children’s parties at the weekend. Regular users    include: Youth Clubs, U3A, Bingo, Vineyard Church, craft and games groups, Wine Circle, Adult Education, various keep fit groups, and dog training. The centre is also used for blood donations, and elections.

The Preston Road Community Centre Association (PRCCA) is the current charity and runs the centre for the benefit of local residents and organisations. Its objects are to advance education and, in the interests of social welfare, to provide leisure and recreational activities.' The PRCCA website has more. If elected as a town councillor I will learn more about other groups that could fit in well at the centre.
