Community Centre
« on: February 12, 2002, 12:09:03 am »
Is there anyone in the village or nearby that would like to help keep your youth and community centre operational? The Centre, in Station Road is a well used facility for Brookmans Park and Welham Green. It is run as a registered charity, by villagers, for villagers, but it needs new volunteers to keep it going.

Once a month for a couple of hours a management committee meets and plans activities that take place in the centre and the day to day needs of running the centre, from fabric to lettings. It needs 'new blood' and new ideas to maximise the Centre's potential and ensure that it's lease is extended beyond its renewal date of 2003. The Centre belongs to the village and the maxim applies, use it or lose it! So if you can get involved or just want more info, get in touch.. please!

@ 1.4.02 there has been 1 additional comment, but no response to appeal, but message viewed on 43 occasions. Also, an article in the Wewyn Hatfield Times resulted in zero response. Please, this is your Centre. Does the village want the Community Centre? Hundreds of people raised money for it 30 years ago. Some may remember the 'thermometer' on the Village Green showing how much had been raised. Local people designed it, helped to build it and ever since have been involved in maintaining it and running it. Thousands have used it, but when it's gone, it's gone! Come on Brookmans Park!!

All these posts about somewhere for young people to go reminded me of this post from a month ago. I suppose volunteers are what the Youth Centre needs. Is there anyone able to spare the time...that is probably a key issue.

Scykotik - the Youth and Community Centre is fine as a building (in my humble opinion) - the thing that is missing is volunteers to staff it so it can be open for teenagers to use it!

According to Martin Ferdinando of the North Mymms Community Centre, fresh efforts are underway to try to improve facilities for young people in the area. The development follows a meeting of the local Youth Liaison Group where young people, community leaders and volunteers, and the police, met to discuss a host of new ideas - many brought to the meeting by the teenagers themselves.  Click here for more details.
