Community centre activities increase
Report by Martin Ferdinando
Dance, drama, and Marshall Arts are just a few of the activies now available, ensuring that the centre remains a focus for young and old in the community.
On Tuesday evenings from 4pm the Lisa Jaye School of Dance now offers 5 different classes for children aged 3–16 as well as tuition for adults later in the evening. Contact Lisa on 01707 897149 for further details.
On Thursday evenings, the Performance Kids Drama Workshops make the centre their venue. They too welcome young people from 3.30pm. Further details from Lucy on 020 7209 3805.
Ken Culshaw and his Welham Marshall Arts class provide further activities for young people. Ken can be contacted on 01707 266972. An adult class follows.
The Brookmans Park Youth Football Team also avail themselves of the football pitch at the centre either for matches or practise sessions most weekends during the season.
The Willowbrook Nursery continues to thrive each weekday. Jane Sandhu can be contacted on 01707 654370.
The 2nd Hatfield (1st Brookmans Park) Scouts are also making use of the centre because of the increased demand for scouting places from local youth.
So, despite the lack of a youth club, the centre still attracts young people. If however, there is anyone interested in running further youth activities, please contact the centre, (details below).
The adult activities, keep fit Monday afternoons and the Tai Chi classes Wednesday evenings also continue.
In addition, the centre has seen an encouraging increase in lettings for family parties. Residents of the parish get a 10% discount on hire charges. Contact the bookings secretary, Julia Guerra, on 01707 276754 for further details.
Finally, the centre’s management committee thank everyone who has supported the centre either at the twice a year quiz nights or bi annual jumble sales recently. The latter raised more than £1,000 for centre funds in September.
Run as a charity, by volunteers, for the community, the centre is totally reliant on fund raising and lettings. If you would like to learn more about the centre or assist in any way, please contact the management committee on 01707 260198, e-mail email@example.com or write to the centre, Station Road, North Mymms, Hatfield, Herts, AL9 7PF. We look forward to hearing from you.
