Transcript of NBSP Portswood Community Group - Newsletter Issue 5

  • St Denys Community Centre originallyopened in 1976, the main hall being builtfrom dismantled pre-fabs from the PrioryRoad area, followed by the addition of acouple of extra huts.

    Since then the main hall has been rebuilt,followed by a total rebuild of the kitchen &other meeting rooms for 2006, plus superbchanging room facilities, for use with theexternal Multi Use Games Area.

    The building is used by Southampton DayServices Monday to Friday, who funded the2006 rebuild along with Sports England,leaving the Community only the Main Hall touse through the working week.

    Managed by only a small voluntary group,we are in the process of expanding thepremises, through the Asset Transferscheme. This would enable us to furtherimprove the building, and for it to betransferred to the local community. Thiswould not only allow more independencebut also the ability to access new potsof funding.

    However to move this forward morevolunteers are needed to come on board atthis exciting time. Plans for the newextension include a Day Nursery, Sprungfloor dance / fitness room, computer suiteas well as extra meeting rooms / offices.
