Hazlerigg and District war Memorial Community Centre has been a registered charity since 1995. The community centre was built in 1956 with funds from residents of Hazlerigg, to honour those who lost their lives in the two World Wars. But the building is now in desperate need of repair. It urgently needs a new roof and needs to be modernised to be energy efficient and more inviting and accessible. As a war memorial, the building is locally and historically significant. It would be a tragedy to lose this vital community asset due to lack of funding. As the centre is at the heart of the village the roof is vital to ensure the community will have a safe and secure place to come together. The project will be effective as the new roof will ensure that the historical war memorial can get a new lease of life and to keep supporting our local community.

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide a new roof to our centre.

Why it's a great idea:

The whole community and surrounding areas will benefit from our project as everyone has access to the community centre and its classes. Many of the community uses our centre on a weekly basis. The socially isolated members of our community really benefit from our centre and for some it’s the only social interaction they receive. Hazlerigg community centre helps with social isolation which is a growing concern in the UK. In the UK, only 17% of older people are in contact with family, friends and neighbours less than once a week, and 11% in contact less than once a month. At our centre we provide a weekly coffee morning which allows the older community to get together and socialize. The project is a space that really matters to the local community and this is evident is all the support we receive from the community. The centre has been at the heart of our village since 1956 and is a landmark in our community.

Steps to get it done:

  • A new roof
