Crawshawbooth Village Centre is entering a new chapter, with the agreement of the transfer of the building including the Library area from LCC to The Community Association.
Working together the future is looking Bigger, Better & Brighter!
Crawshawbooth Village Centre is owned by Lancashire County Council & has been managed by The Community Association (CA) for many years.
The Community Association is a non-profit making registered charity, who manage the facilities at the Village Centre in Crawshawbooth for the local community.
Working together the CA & Community have secured the future of The Village Centre in Crawshawbooth. The CA plan to accomodate more Community & User Groups & have recently re-opened the Library as a Childrens Library.
The Centre offer facilities for all age groups in our community from Baby & Toddler Groups, Jo Jingles, Breakfast & After School, Pre-School, Uniformed Groups, Art Club, Keep Fit, Yoga, Pilates, Kickboxing, Drama, Dance, Deaf Group, Scrabble Club & Lunch Club.
The Centre Coffee Bar offers a relaxing drop in for coffee, cake & a chat plus lunches & snacks. Tuesday Lunch Club offers the chance for over 50s to enjoy a freshly prepared meal & social interaction.
We have recently completed a refurb in the Library area, which has re-opened as a Childrens Library complete with a relaxing refreshment area with free WIFI. We also hope to develop a drop in hub for people to use & enjoy the facilities.
Our Community Library is now open! It is nearly two years since the old Crawshawbooth Library was closed by LCC due a cost cutting review. During that time we have been working behind the scenes with many different departments @ LCC to secure the complete transfer of The Village Centre building to The CA.
The old Library area has been re-decorated with the carpets cleaned ready for re-opening. The Community Library offers Childrens Books plus Large Print & a 'Book Exchange' for the older reader. Seating, Wifi & Refreshments are also available.
