Plans to enhance the centre have been on the council’s agenda for a long time. Cuts in funding, as well as other influencing factors, meant initial plans had to be reconsidered and consequently the project was scaled down to something more realistic. The Working Group is now working with an appointed architect and recently had some initial sketch proposals for alterations to the Grosvenor Centre layout (including some of the external areas at the rear of the building) to consider. The proposals were very much welcomed and further meetings are now planned to determine the costs of the alternations. Once costs are known the Working Group will focus on sourcing funding.
In the meantime, the Grosvenor Centre will continue to operate as it has been doing for many years and offers a range of excellent facilities to hire for meetings, private functions and community events. There is an excellent bar provision, free wifi and kitchen areas. For information on how to book the centre, please contact the parish office on 01785 822685
