Our newest Community Centre
Located on the Queen Adelaide estate in Penge, the building was formerly a disused laundry. The building comprises of:
- Main Hall (approximately 70 m2)
- Office (approximately 10 m2)
- Three toilets (including accessible bathroom)
- Entrance lobby
The Building is owned by Clarion Housing Association and managed by Play Place. Play Place want to work with local residents to develop a range of new community opportunities and activities. Our model is to generate income through social enterprise methods (Hires, grants or other fundraising) and offer free community activities using surpluses that are achieved.
We are developing a residents support group to work with us. The resident group will support local mapping and oversee the development of the programme.
Example activities may include:
- Children and youth sessions
- Holiday programmes
- Community Meeting Space
- Family activity days
- A Community Cafe
- All ages social programmes
- Targeted programmes
- Children’s parties and events
- Commuter ICT groups
- Health and well being
Please let us know your idea and we would welcome you on the residents action group - Everyone Counts!
