Charlbury Community Centre aims to provide facilities and activities for young people, from babies right through to young adults. Thomas Gifford Room is our “Youth Room” and has been kitted out with things we hope will make it a hub for young people. There are bean bags, a large screen and black-out blinds, free WiFi, charging stations and ipads available to borrow. There is a table tennis and pool table. And there may be times set aside when it is quiet for people who want to get on with their homework. And of course there is the café for refreshments. The back door leads straight out onto Nineacres recreation ground with its sports fields and children’s play area.
Young people can use the Sports Hall (for the first hour) and the Thomas Gifford Room to meet up with others and chill out in their own space. There is a table tennis table, pool table, board games and a large screen TV to show movies and sport. We welcome ideas about what else young people would like to have available for their sessions. For further information, or to volunteer to help with these sessions please contact Margie: email@example.com
Charlbury Community Centre is a great space to hold children’s parties. We can offer, for example, an hour in the sports hall (set up for whichever sport you prefer) followed by an hour in the Thomas Gifford room, where children can have some food, or do quieter activities. You can provide the food yourself or we can arrange fo caterers to do it for you. Please contact Jenny firstname.lastname@example.org for details and to find out about prices and availability.
During the school holidays we run activity and sport sessions for school-age children and the details will be posted on this page a few weeks prior to each holiday.
The library runs occasional story sessions, especially in the school holidays, and hosts many school visits during term time.
The café in the Community Centre is a great place to meet and now has longer opening hours. It is partly staffed by volunteers and helps us to raise money for the upkeep of the centre. Do pay us a visit soon as see for yourself. More information and menus can be found here.
