Jubilee Community Centre set for Open Day

Following a management restructuring process at the beginning of the year, refurbishment work on the Jubilee community centre is now complete and details of an Open Event on Saturday 7th October have now been announced.

The new team of Trustees have been busy developing a long-term plan for the centre and now residents have been invited to attend the centre from 1.30 to 4.00pm to see what the new team has been doing.

The Jubilee will be officially ‘re-launched’ at 2.00pm by the Chairs of the two Parish Councils – Councillor Mark Tattum and Councillor Andrew Burrows.

The Jubilee Centre has also been selected as one of the nominated charities for October at Waitrose Kenilworth. The Trustees hope that members of the community will tell family and friends to put their green tokens in the Jubilee box!!

The Jubilee is a designated community space and as part of a renewed effort to provide a secure future for these purposes now enjoys sponsorship from local businesses for the first time.  Local sponsors include: Ginger Property – The Estate Agent and Property Consultancy; Acclaimed Mortgage Consultancy and Tuscany Pizza.

Jubilee Open Event – Saturday 7th October 2017

Venue: The Jubilee, Station Road (behind HSBC Bank), Balsall Common
