49 years ago The doors of the then closed down Westfield Junior school were re-opened by a small committee of local people who were determined that the building should be brought back into use and serve the Local community. The first groups to use the premises were the Westfield playgroup and a few youth clubs in the evening .
Next year the community centre will celebrate 50 years of serving the local community. David Peake chairperson of the centre’s management committee said ” In July 2017 The centre is planning a number of events in a week-long celebration of the Community Centre’s long and rich history and is appealing for people who attended the centre or who have worked at the centre to get in touch especially if they have any photos videos or memories of the community centre and its groups. In september we will begin filming a history of the community centre covering the last 5 decades ”
