 WELCOME!


Here, we aim to bring together the information you may find about using and enjoying  The Lawn Community Centre - "Your Centre" - "Bringing People Together"

Webmaster Notes - updated 7th July 2024                        


Have you noticed the yellow box on the wall to the left of our Lawn Community Centre main entrance? That's our
Automated Heart Defibrillator.  It is accessible at any time, day or night, and not just when the Lawn Centre is open. It can not be stressed enough just how important this facility is to our community, in fact it could be a real life-saver for someone! Operating instructions and prompts are given by the machine so no prior training is necessary to be able to operate it correctly and effectively

As an organisation run entirely by volunteers , we are always on the lookout for anyone who may be willing to help us, by offering some of their time or talents; by becoming the person-of-contact in the Office during those times when hirers are using the Lawn Centre , by helping run new groups, or helping with our new Bookings System, or keeping our web site pages current, or occasionally help with some maintenance tasks, or helping with organising our events, or even by delivering our Newsletters to the houses in our "Lawn-Area-Of-Benefit".

There are so many tasks that are involved in running the Lawn Centre so there is always the opportunity to  become part of the Lawn Centre team. By spreading the workload, it helps all our volunteers and our hirers.

The Lawn Community Centre is such a welcoming, friendly and special place.

If you would like to help in some way, please contact our Secretary, Susan Saunders, by leaving a message on the 01793 651 806, or by Email at:- secretarylawnca@gmail.com.
Thank you.
