Chair of Trustees
New Brighton Community Centre Chair Tony Jones is appealing for local residents to back the Community Centre.
He said, "The Community centre is an established venue that has been used by the local community since 1981,
generations of residents and families have used the centre over the years for recreation, support and advice.
It's always available for use by the general public for meeting, socialising, exercising and learning. It is a
charity, run by our voluntary committee of trustees, made up of local residents, who give up their time freely
to help the centre continue its support to the local community".
Tony Jones continued by stating that; "if you are organising a meeting of some kind, or an event, use the community centre and pay for it. That way you're helping to keep it going. You could also arrange a fundraiser to bring funds directly into the coffers of the community centre".
A makeover has taken place in the main activity room, which includes murals and landscapes of New Brighton & Liverpool landmarks, painted by well known local artist Fred Biddulph, with the paint sponsored by AJ Howell DIY of Rake Lane, Wallasey. A new website has also been set up detailing all that's best about the centre, including an archive section stretching back to 1981, maybe you recognise yourself?
The Community Centre hosted a recent Environment Action Day around the streets of New Brighton with residents
receiving a leaflet telling them that they could use a number of skips to get rid of their rubbish.
Around 40 partners also went around the streets on a mass litter pick, the picture shows the Police and Cathy Roberts from the Literally bookshop outside the centre about to go off on a walkaround to help clean the streets.
We would particularly like to thank Michelle Gray the Wallasey Constituency Engagement Officer at Wirral Council for organising the event and bringing so many partners together for a very successful day that brought so much benefit to the local community.

information to partners, including Merseyside Police, Involve North West, Wirral Council Community Patrol and
The partners were calling around the area knocking on doors informing people of general information available including delivering leaflets explaining the benefits of smart meters.
New Brighton Community Centre needs your help to stay open. Please help us to help you by donating.
New Brighton Community Centre has been providing services to the local community since 1981, and you might have been helped and supported over that time. For instance, you might have gone to the youth club back in the 1980s and now have your own family and may wish to contribute. No matter how big or small, just £2 from each resident can make all the difference to enable it to continue for many years to come for the benefit of future generations. The centre has always existed to improve the quality of life for local people by offering excellent services which provide a range of educational, recreational, and social opportunities that meet the needs of the local community.
"We recently were delighted to receive a grant from the National Lottery to enable us to continue our project
of delivering 3 course meals 4 days a week to lonely isolated elderly people in New Brighton.
It has been a terrific success targeting help and support to those most in need during the pandemic.
We do this by talking to our residents regularly on the telephone, including signposting them to appropriate support agencies, helping them by keeping an eye on them with extra shopping, appointments and medicines. We also provide quizzes/puzzles, birthday celebrations with a present, and the first to name the old photographs on our regular newsletters, with a prize for the winner. Our project is completely open to all elderly and vulnerable in New Brighton."
Tony Jones - Chair
