New Rainbows and Brownies page

Does your daughter enjoy adventures, going on trips, and meeting up with friends? Are you looking to get her more involved with the local community?

Have you considered signging her up for Rainbows or Brownies?

The 41st City of Coventry South Rainbows and Brownies meet during term times at Cheylesmore Community Centre and have recently updated their system to make sign-ups easier. You can now contact the appropriate unit online and the group leader can get back to you to let you know when your child can start.

Cupcake Day a Success

The 15th of June was Cupcake Day, and we had Carole at the Centre hosting her very own sale. We are happy to announce it was a success – not a crumb was left behind, and Carole has single-handedly raised £82.60 for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Carole would like to extend a big thanks to everyone who took part, for their encouragement and support, and for raising so much money for a good cause.

Congratulations, Carole!

Would you like to host your own fundraising event at the Centre? Check out our Room Finder, or use our Enquiry Booking Form to check for availability.

Introducing: Room Booking Enquiry

At the centre, we have a number of rooms that can be hired out for a variety of occasions: private functions, community events, business meetings, (and we accept late bookings, depending on availability.)

If you’re organising an event, and you’re looking for a venue, our Room Finder feature has been updated with pictures of our rooms, as well as their dimensions. We will be striving to add more images as we go along, but in the mean time, you can now get a better idea how our Art Room, Games Hall, and Main Hall look like when they are set up for a meeting or an event.

We have also set up an online enquiry form that you can use if you’re interested in booking one of our rooms. Simply fill in your requirements and contact details, and we will get back in touch to let you know whether it is available or not.

Introducing Printing Services

Printing at Cheylesmore just got easier.

As you know, the centre offers scanning, printing, and lamination services. You can now submit any A4 document for black-and-white printing through the new form on our website.

Just as a reminder, our prices for A4 black-and-white printing are as follows:

1 – 50 copies: £0.20 per sheet

50+ copies: £0.15 per sheet


Further, we can also laminate A4 sheets of paper for £1.00 per sheet. You can select that option in the form as well.
