Cleveleys Community Church Centre is having a Facelift!
Cleveleys Coastal Community Team (CCT) has been helping to get the Centre ship-shape for the coming year! It’s a precious local building and the CCT intend it to reach its full potential as a true hub of the community.
The Coastal Community Team has secured the help of our friends at HMP Kirkham to decorate the inside of the building for them. One room is finished and looks bright and cheerful, and lovely and clean. Even the floor’s clean and polished. It will be amazing when it’s all done – well done guys
Will you help?
Not to be content with making a bit of a difference, the CCT want to make a LOT of a difference and is already thinking about Phase II…
The building is run by the community for the community and and surplus from room hire costs is put towards improving the building. Eg you might have noticed that the windows have been replaced – which isn’t a cheap job.
There’s a lot more that we’d like to do. For example:
- new curtains across the stage (or even dry cleaning the ones that are there).
- Furnishings/fabrics/hangings or even carpet to deaden the sound at meetings – currently it’s a very rattly space.
- There’s outside work that needs doing, for example gutters and (dare we say it) the roof needs attention. (It looks like it’s got ‘nail fatigue’ ie they’re old and done for).
- We’d like to set up a computer room so will need second hand kit, tables and chairs.
- There are lots of other things that are needed if you want to volunteer anything else.
- Cleveleys in Bloom want to make the outside bright and cheerful so they’ll need planters, plants, materials and more.
- The CCT has a cunning plan for signage to direct people from the town centre to the building.
Have you got a local business or organisation who could help with any of this? Come on Cleveleys, you can do it – we’ll make sure that any businesses who do help get recognised and a warm glow of satisfaction is guaranteed

At The Heart of the Community
Cleveleys Community Church Centre is owned and managed by a team of volunteers with the aim of being at the centre of the community.
It’s about providing a place for people to go and make friends, to join in with different activities and events, have a bite to eat and a brew, and just generally feel at home and find someone to have a natter to and something to do.
If you’re looking for something to do they’re always on the lookout for people who can volunteer an hour or two of their time each week to help with the community centre activities. Jobs like locking up and unlocking the building, tidying, office duties and generally being on hand to help. If you’d like to be part of the team please get in touch and find out more.
It was built as Beach Road School and later converted to the Frank Townend Community Centre. Cleveleys Community Church Centre bought the building in early 2016.

At Cleveleys Community Church Centre you can always be sure of a warm welcome
Once the Frank Townend Centre, the former primary school building on Beach Road is now Cleveleys Community Church Centre.
Cleveleys Community Centre took over management of the venue in 2010 from Wyre Council while they retained responsibility for maintenance and repairs. They bought the premises in March 2016, to make sure it continues in its vital role as the heart of the community and a meeting place, offering something for everyone with varied classes and activities.
The partnership has been a great success with community usage increasing greatly in the years since and a wide range of classes and activities for all ages now on offer, along with room hire and catering facilities.
Always a Community Centre
Reverend Stephen Scholes, Minister of Cleveleys Community Church, said: “Since taking over the centre we’ve built it up to become a focal point for the community – it is used for everything from educational classes and art groups to dog training and blood donations. The building will always be used as a community centre and church for the people of Cleveleys.”
The deal includes a restriction on the future of the centre to community use only under the Local Government Act 1972, which allows local authorities to dispose of property for less than normal market value where it will help secure the social wellbeing of the area.
As a result the building was valued as a community asset and sold as such, freeing up funds to finance future council spending. The sale was finalised in March 2016.
There are groups and classes here for all kinds of things. There are art and dancing classes, Residents groups, police and public meetings, dog obedience – you’ll find something for everyone and all the groups who use the building are always looking for new members!
