New Community Centre Building Survey

Take our new building surveyOur village needs a new community centre. The maintenance costs on the current 60-year old building are too high and the demand from our growing population already exceeds its capacity. We need your help to plan our new facility. Please take a few moments to complete and return the attached Freepost questionnaire.

We need a new Community Centre Chalfont St Peter’s existing community centre is reaching the end of its useful life. The maintenance costs are rising and demand exceeds supply.

Already about 1,500 people from more than 75 groups, including U3A, Bridge, table tennis, judo, fine arts, and a children’s nursery, visit the centre each week. We frequently have to turn away bookings. There is also an option to work with the local Guides, whose current very old building has also outlived its original purpose and is used by 80 young people every week, but without any space for parking and has high maintenance costs.

Our plans We have started planning a new, bigger and better community centre, which we hope will also incorporate a new Guide facility. We envisage the new building will include a bigger central hall and stage area with up-dated sound and lighting, and more meeting rooms with wifi facilities.

Help us plan our new facilities You can help by telling us your views on the facilities the new building should provide.

Please take a few moments to fill in the short questionnaire opposite, which you can tear off and return using its FREEPOST or drop it off at the existing community centre, or the Co-op.

Thank you

Self Protection Workshops January 2017

Self Protection CoursesProtect your family and teach them to protect themselves

Whatever age you are, the ability to protect yourself will provide you with a life-long skill. It will increase threat consciousness and personal confidence. These skills can be used in your daily routine, not just in conflict scenarios and are applicable for every age group. Self-protection does not need to be 100% physical. The most effective protection against intimidation is overcoming your feelings of vulnerability. Self Protection Ltd will teach you how. We will also provide you with a realistic, stressful, threat based scenario in which to prove the effectiveness of what you have learnt with us.

In conjunction with the Gerrards Cross Community Association (GXCA), Self Projection Ltd ran a workshop on 13th March 2016 in the Colston Hall. It was funded by a Big Lottery Award grant that GXCA had been successful in winning. Over 90 people attended the workshop, 50 of these were under the age of 17 years old.
