Camborne Community Centre was donated to the Community in 1937. It is a popular venue in the town for many groups, especially as it has a sprung dancefloor (think Blackpool Tower ballroom, but in Camborne!) The dance hall is used by dance schools with pupils from the age of 4 to 94 and for Saturday evening dances where the twinkle toed can trip the light fantastic, or just catch up with friends. Time has begun to take its' toll on the floor, and we now need to look for some funding to help us replace the floor. As the floor measures approximately 130 square metres, this is not going to be an easy project to achieve. We know that with the support of the people of Camborne, and dance enthusiasts all over the world, we can give the floor another 80 years of life, and provide activity and enjoyment to those who love to dance for many, many more years to come.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The Community Centre is a social hub for the town. There are many groups who meet and make use of the facilities. We will provide a replaced sprung dancefloor to ensure that the people of Camborne and the surrounding area have somewhere wonderful to go and learn to dance, reminisce about dancing or just to try and emulate their heroes from 'Strictly'. Dancing is good for the body and the mind, it brings social benefits as well as physical, the ability to use a sprung dancefloor gives the students of the dance schools the best possible start in learning to dance. Who knows, maybe one day another Darcey Bussell or Len Goodman will emerge from our hall - if not, just dozens of happy, healthy, socially active people will do the trick for us. Pickle my pasty...
