Welcome to the Ashington Community Centre website.
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy New Year which has got off to a cracking start with the award of the British Empire Medal for services to the community to Margaret Alford, our bookings secretary and founder of the annual Ashington Festival - fantastic news and heartiest congratulations!
Now, some background about the Centre for those that don't know!
The Community Centre is owned by you and your neighbours. It is held in trust and run by an elected Management Committee nearly all of whom are volunteers.
The facilities are enjoyed by an active playgroup, a weekly mother and toddler meeting, a thriving junior football club, regular badminton sessions and a senior football club
Outside you can enjoy the multi-sports court, and inside everything from badminton to short mat bowls plus varying styles of dance from ballet to ballroom.
The facilities are used by a diverse range of groups including Martial Arts, Judo, Karate and Bumpy Jumpy which starts on January 12th from 9.00 am to 1.00pm and then Mondays thereafter - phone Clare on 07966244062 for further information!
Why not hire the sports facilities for an exercise class, football match or a special celebration such as a wedding reception or birthday party? Meeting rooms are also available at very reasonable costs.
For bookings please contact Margaret on 01903 892633.
And you don't need to live in Ashington to hire the facilities; Ashington is between Worthing and Horsham on the A24 just 15 minutes drive from both. Drop into the Community Centre when you have a moment and make use of it as often as you can; we need your support!
If you would like to become involved as a volunteer for example to organise entertainment at the Community Centre we would love to hear from you. Please call Anthony Gilsenan on 01903 891413 if you would like to do this.
We look forward to seeing you there.
