Residents urged to back revamped Community Centre

New Brighton Community Centre Chair Hugh Lloyd is appealing for local residents to
back the Community Centre. He said, “The Community centre is an established venue
that has been used by the local community since 1981, generations of residents and
families have used the centre over the years for recreation, support and advice. It’s
always available for use by the general public for meeting, socialising, exercising and
learning. It is a charity, run by our voluntary committee of trustees, made up of local
residents, who give up their time freely to help the centre continue its support to the
local community”.

Hugh Lloyd continued by stating that; “if you are organising a meeting of some kind, or
an event, use the community centre and pay for it. That way you’re helping to keep it
going. You could also arrange a fundraiser to bring funds directly into the coffers of the
community centre”.

A makeover has taken place in the main activity room, which includes murals and
landscapes of New Brighton & Liverpool landmarks, painted by well known local
artist Fred Biddulph, with the paint sponsored by AJ Howell DIY of Rake Lane,
Wallasey. A new website has also been set up detailing all that’s best about the centre,
including an archive section stretching back to 1981, maybe you recognise yourself?

On the website you will also be able to help the centre by donating as little as £2

The Chair Hugh Lloyd said, “We are asking the residents of New Brighton to support
the trustee’s efforts to ensure we can keep providing and expanding on our current
activities. To donate go to the website; – and by
donating as little as £2 your contribution can make such a huge difference, to ensure that future
generations will be able to benefit from the facilities, services and activities available
in this marvellous building”.
