In recent years The Government has recognised that village halls, community centres and other charities that provide space and facilities for community services and activities can make an enormous difference to the well-being of their communities. It’s a sentiment borne out by a recent flooring upgrade for a much-coveted youth club and community centre in Nailsworth, in the heart of Gloucestershire.
The Nailsworth youth club and its associated community centre are based in a building that has a venerable history dating back to the 1880’s. Initially, a congregational school room attached to the local Chapel, it has become a sports and community hall for the youth club serving Nailsworth and the surrounding area. Today the club, established in 1960, is as busy as ever, opening four evenings per week serving a mixed range of ages from the wider community.
