To give feedback to Staffordshire County Council which gave a grant towards the refurbishment a former Youth Club in Brewood. The building will now provide a range of activities for the local community. There are 2 main halls, several smaller meeting rooms, WC's including one for wheelchair users, kitchen facilities and storage space.
Update 1 March 2021 - A brief update is to let you know that the internal refurbishment will be substantially complete in week commencing Monday 8 March. Plans for equipping, managing and using the new centre are in hand, but due to COVID-19 progress will be slow.
Update 26 March - Refurb now complete. Furniture and equipment now being installed.
Update Mid April - Fire safety measures, security and electricity certifications all in place making the building available for use. COVID restrictions will affect start dates for this. Bookings are already in hand and the best person to contact is Sue Cooper, telephone 07798 774087.
Update Mid June - First use has been made by members of the Brewood Dementia Therapy Group. Beavers, cubs and brownies have been making use of the grassed areas and will very soon be able to meet indoors. Bookings have been made for most evenings, and other activities will commence as soon as current restrictions are lifted.

- A budget is not yet completed, but costs such as insurance, provision of utilities and maintenance are being established or estimated. The intention is to keep hire costs as low as possible as a way of thanking the local Community for their support in making this project a success. Some groups will be able to use the building free of formal charges but donations will be suggested. The Brewood Dementia Therapy Group is an initial example of this.
