The best kind of early Christmas present! Friday is unwrapping day for the new look Marlborough Community and Youth Centre

Friday (December 15) is the big day - the unwrapping of the refurbished and newly equipped Marlborough Community and Youth Centre.  And it has all been done in just less than six months.


It was only in June this year that Marlborough Town Council took on a lease for the former Youth Centre at St Margaret’s Mead after cutbacks at Wiltshire Council meant that the building would have been mothballed - leaving the town with no place for its young people to meet and socialise.  

 

Since then, the Town Council has campaigned hard to raise funds and refurbish the building bringing it up to a standard that will mean it can be used by the whole community.  

 

Lottery funding, an Area Board grant, contributions from developers, McCarthy & Stone, plus generous donations from voluntary groups and those in the local community has meant that the project has quickly moved forward with the new look Marlborough Community and Youth Centre now ready to open.  

 

It now has a multi-use hall for sports and events, a music room, football changing facilities, a kitchen, a TV room with a pool table, a computer suite and an office.  

 

There’s also CCTV, an intruder alarm and an access system to make the building safe for everyone.  Local groups are already making bookings.  

 

There’ll be a celebratory event to launch it on Friday, December 15 between 5pm and 9pm with something for everyone - party food and a disco for our young guests and celebratory refreshments for those who are a bit older.

 

We hear that Father Christmas is interested in calling in for a look around too.

 

Town Mayor, Mervyn Hall: “We only took this on in June and it’s quite incredible how the community has pulled together to make this happen.  Our thanks go to everyone who has worked so hard to get us to this point and especially those who have generously contributed to the project.  We’re all looking forward to the opening event on Friday.”

 

For details about hiring the Centre or contributing towards equipment still needed for it, please contact Sue Fry, the Town Council's Office Manager at 5, High Street, Marlborough, SN8 1AA or This email address is being protected from spambots.
