Funding approved to improve and modernise Wincham Community Centre
The community of Wincham and its surrounding areas are set to benefit thanks to a community grant. Wincham Community Centre is looking forward to a huge refurbishment project that will benefit its hundreds of users, including the children that attend Wincham Community Primary School.
The Community Centre serves many people within the local community. With lots of regular users and community groups hiring the Community Centre for their meetings, clubs and parties/events. It is also vital for the children at the Primary School. This refurbishment project is all possible thanks to a £87,868.99 grant from funding body WREN. This grant has been supplemented by various donations from Wincham Parish Council, Thor Specialities (UK) Ltd, Incamesh Filtration Ltd, Breakaway Dance Club and CW&C Ward Councillors.
The money, awarded by WREN’s FCC Community Action Fund, and that donated from other sources will be used to refurbish and redecorate most of the Community Centre. The Centre will benefit from a new main entrance, lighting, toilet blocks, kitchen area to the Club Room, curtains throughout, a video projector and external lighting. These improvements will mean the Community Centre will be more accessible to its current and future users, giving the community of Wincham an even more user-friendly centre for all community activities.
Mr C. Cenac, Chairperson of the centre’s management believes the facility will make a huge difference to the lives of people living in the area. He says “This project will provide a real boost to the people of Wincham, it is fantastic that WREN has awarded us this money and we’re really looking forward to our Community Centre taking shape over the coming months. On behalf of the management committee I would also like to thank the many other donors and all our very supportive community, without whom this project would not have been possible.”
The management committee would also like to thank Cheshire Action Group for their advice and recommendations.
WREN is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for community, biodiversity and heritage projects from funds donated by FCC Environment through the Landfill Communities Fund.
Richard Smith, WREN’s grant manager for Cheshire, says: “We’re delighted to be supporting the improvements at Wincham Community Centre and pleased our funding will make such a difference to so many groups. WREN is always happy to consider grant applications for projects that benefit local communities and we’re looking forward to this one having a positive impact very soon.”
During the renovation work, the centre will remain partially open and users are invited to check availability before booking. The management is committed to creating the least possible inconvenience to its users.
