A showcase of the clubs and groups that use Crowborough Community Centre is to be staged on Tuesday 29th October prior to the Community Association’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) in the evening.
The Crowborough Community Association (CCA), which administers the Centre, hopes the expo will help existing users attract more members and encourage new groups to use the Community Centre’s facilities.
The Centre has three meeting rooms, a dance studio, a café and fully equipped main hall and stage. Joint Centre Manager, Lorna Dowson-Collins said:
Our facilities are second to none in East Sussex and the lighting and sound systems in our main hall are of an exceptional professional standard.
To help us get the message across, we have invited groups and organisations which are already active in the Centre to take a table at our ‘mini expo’ in the main hall ahead of the AGM itself.
Existing user groups at the Community Centre cover: fitness and wellbeing (Tai Chi, yoga, Pilates, kick boxing, Weight Watchers, Brahma Kumaris, Pranic Healing, for example); dance (including ballroom and Latin classes as well as midweek Tea Dances and Saturday night dances); learning (University of the Third Age, art classes, singing and sewing); clubs (covering bridge, chess, flowers and horticulture, Lions, Women’s Institute and Women’s Town Guild); children’s activities (junior chess, drama and ballet, for example); social care (including Care for the Carers and dementia support groups); and entertainments (professional shows, amateur dramatics, pantomime Pine Grove Pictures cinema club and special events put on by the Gallery Café).
The expo will start at 10.30am concluding at 4.30pm with the AGM starting at 5pm.
Chantal Wilson, Chairman of the CCA said:
We hope you will find this format interesting and different and that you will want to come to see the stalls and attend the AGM which is open to all, not just members of the CCA.
The AGM agenda will include a report on the Centre’s activities by the joint managers, a report from the chairman which will cover the new Enterprise Centre and ‘civic hub’ in the Pine Grove building next door, and an update on the Mead House housing development and replacement parking issues.
The AGM will be followed by light refreshments, all made in the Community Centre kitchen by the Centre’s Gallery Café staff.
