Haversham Social & Community Centre

Haversham Social & Community Centre is a registered charity (charity no. 300276). Its purpose is to provide facilities for the local community to meet and to socialise, and to organise events for the local community. The Centre is held in trust by Trustees and is run by an annually elected committee. It is normally referred to locally as ‘The Social Centre’.

The Social Centre is based in premises to the rear of Haversham Village School, which were built with money raised by the local community at the time the school was being built. It was transferred to the ownership of Milton Keynes Council and is known by them as an ‘annexe’.

 

The Social Centre relies on raising funds via the events organised each year and through hiring out its facilities and equipment to remain self-sufficient. Recent grants received during the Covid-19 pandemic have enabled the Social Centre to remain solvent and to make some much-needed renovations.

 

The premises meet with the criteria laid down by law for accessibility for the disabled and comprise a small meeting hall and a kitchen with good facilities, as well as male and female toilets and one toilet for those with disabilities. In the evenings and at weekends, the Centre also has use of the school’s main hall which is adjacent to the small meeting hall.

 

The Centre is available for hire for various activities; details can be found here. Flyer for hire of facilities.

LOCAL GROUPS MEETING AT THE SOCIAL CENTRE

 

Haversham Jubilee Club
An afternoon club for senior citizens who live in, or are connected with, Haversham and Little Linford.

The Jubilee Club normally meets on the second Wednesday of each month and provides an opportunity for the older members of our community to get together for conversation and entertainment in a warm and friendly environment. New members are always welcome.

Meetings take place at Haversham Social & Community Centre from 2.30 pm, and generally start with a more formal section (this might be a presentation by a guest speaker or an afternoon of reminiscences on a specific topic, maybe some games) followed by afternoon tea and homemade cakes, with a chance to chat amongst friends. Subs are £2.00 per session, including afternoon tea, and there is a raffle too.

Next meeting: Wednesday 11th May at 2:30pm. Speaker: Christine Duncan - Bucks Fire Services
