Cheylesmore Café: Update

Centre Admin : October 3, 2017 8:39 am : Community News
Dear all,
We’ve been working towards setting up a café in our centre, and we’re happy to announce that the plans have moved onto the next stage. But we need your help! We want to make sure that we offer a menu you love, at the right price.
To help us out, we’ve set up a little survey that you can fill out by clicking this link: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/H8VDJPB It will be of tremendous help, and we want to hear your opinions and preferences.
Thank you,
The Centre Management Team

Library Official Opening: September 30th

Centre Admin : September 26, 2017 11:04 am : Events

We are happy to announce that, following a brief closure for repairs, the Cheylesmore Library is now open and being run by volunteers. The opening times are the same as before. The process has taken 14 months, but we are happy and proud that we have accomplished this.

The ‘Official Opening Ceremony’ takes place on Saturday 30th September at 11.00am when the Deputy Lord Mayor cuts the ribbon of the new entrance into the Cheylesmore Community Centre. This is very exciting for all of us, as this will also be the first working day of the library as part of the Cheylesmore Community Association.

The Deputy Lord Mayor will arrive in the library at 10.45am to talk to the volunteers, community centre personnel & Library Services personnel.

The ceremony will be followed by the presentation of certificates to the children who took part in the Summer Reading Scheme.

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!

For more information on Cupcake Day, follow the #cupcakeday on Twitter and Facebook, or check out the website at: https://cupcakeday.alzheimers.org.uk/

Introducing: Room Booking Enquiry

Centre Admin : May 23, 2017 3:44 pm : Announcements

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.
