A.W Hardy are making great progress on the new Chantry Way Community Centre. The scaffolding around the building is gradually coming down and the frames for the hall windows are now going in. The roofing / soffits / fascia’s etc are all now complete and all windows and doors other than those for the hall and stairwell are in.
Don’t forget the major purpose of our new building is supporting and giving a home to community groups who provide activities and services to Billericay residents. If you are thinking about setting up a new volunteer led community group then we can help. As part of our 2020 budget we are offering micro-grants of up to £250 to new groups who wish to provide a community service in the new building. Whether it be regular coffee mornings, a new club, something for young people or an activity focusing on the socially isolated, the money can be used to help setup and establish your community group.
We will also allow you to use our facilities for free for 3 months which means that during the most challenging period of a new group’s existence finances will be easier to manage. The meeting rooms and hall will be ready for use during the 4th quarter of the year – but now is the time for you to start preparing, finding volunteers and planning how you can help and support our community.
