Update on Framwellgate Moor Community Centre

The transfer of the Community Centre into the control of the Management Committee is expected to be completed by the end of the year. Under this proposal Durham County Council will repair the outside of the building and the Community Association will pay 30% of these costs – around £85,000.

The full cost of repair has risen significantly since the publication of the last Newsletter, as further, more detailed, investigations have been carried out. This is a significant amount of money and we have been greatly helped by our 3 County Councillors for the area who have committed £15,000 to the cause subject to match funding. We are working on that additional funding as this goes to press. As well as having to find this contribution for external repairs the Community Association will be fully responsible for redecoration and refurbishment to the inside of the building.

If you have a group that needs space or you would like more information about the groups already using the Centre then get in touch with Terry Simpson at the Centre either by phone on 0191 3863356 (he is there every weekday morning) or by e-mail: Framwellgatecommunity@btconnect.com
