Things are moving at a pace now. The first session of the new Barrow Hill Youth Group, "BarrowHillAZ" is today. This is open to all 12-16 year olds from Barrow Hill & will be free, but there will be a tuck shop where you can buy sweets, crisps, drinks etc.

Also, we're starting to plan short term building restoration and have had a roofer & a heating engineer on site. All help welcome with that from local volunteers & tradespeople - we will provide good publicity for all local businesses that can help.

Wifi has been ordered - we're awaiting an installation date...

If you're on facebook, we'd urge you to like the Barrow Hill Community Trust page & also join whichever of the action groups may suit you:

We've our first community open meeting on 20th March, 6-8pm in the Memorial Hall. All are welcome. Come & tell us what you'd like to see in the hall & find out how you can help or join the charity volunteers.

We're now insured to re-open half of the building - the lounge area (suitable for social groups), the main hall (was the downstairs concert room in the main building) & a meeting room (seats 12; was the committee room). These areas are relatively dry. Please get in touch if you'd like to use them. We can't yet re-open the upstairs hall, the games room bar or the new concert room - these have damaged roofs & are leaking water. However we're working to sort that out & plan uses for all of the building. Come along to the open meeting to help set the vision for the building!

We'd like to explain the current situation: there's currently a hole in one of the roofs due to some small scale vandalism & thus the insurance company are not yet happy for us to open the building. We're working to open as a new community centre as fast as possible and are seeking lottery funding to help with that. If you can help - with practical or office skills, please get in touch!

We're pleased to announce that Barrow Hill Community Trust has been accepted as a registered charity. This means we can now start the process of transferring ownership of the Memorial Club to the Community Trust, as well as applying for funding to get the building safe enough to open.
