Community Centre Update

Message from our Chairman 

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed that we have started building our long-awaited Community Centre on the Rec. Work started in May and is scheduled to be completed next February.

However whilst the extensive efforts of many in the village enabled us to raise sufficient funds to get the building underway, there is one final fund-raising challenge where we desperately need your help please, in that we have sufficient funds to build but not to finish-off and fully fit-out the centre. So, for example, we still need to gather funds to equip the main hall with chairs and staging, the kitchen with equipment, and the cafe with tables and chairs.etc.

In total, we will need £150,000 to complete the project and over the coming months you will see a variety of village activities aimed at achieving this. We hope you are able to fully support these and make your contribution to what will soon be a fantastic village asset.

When the building is nearer completion, we plan to arrange some guided tours so that you can see its amazing potential for your self, but in the meantime this is best appreciated by clicking the ‘play’ button below to activate the ‘Walk Through’. This will give a real sense of the flexibility of the building and its capacity to host the wide variety of activities that the village has identified. Hopefully it also gives an early sense of the warm, welcoming, community atmosphere that we hope to create

 

 

Many thanks for your help and encouragement thus far.

Chairman of Duxford Parish Council
