A message from Jean Charman, Chairman of Trustees, Camborne Community Centre

I am delighted to inform you that the Community Centre has been awarded a grant of £239,000 from Section 106 funds to carry out renovation and refurbishment work to the main building. As you will appreciate, looking after a building that is over 150 years old comes with significant maintenance costs, which is why we are grateful to Cornwall Council for this grant.

This will enable us to carry out some of the essential work that is required on the building - mainly around water ingress and the masonry and windows at the rear of the building.

We look forward to this work being carried out over the next few months and we will update the website with photographs as the work progresses.

Award of contract

We are pleased to announce that local builder E Laity and Sons have been awarded the contract to carry out the refurbishment work on the Community Centre.

The work will be project managed by Jon Ramage from Atlantic Building Consultants.
