There is good news from down at the Gill Nethercott Centre. The Community Centre, which is managed by the local registered charity, the Whitchurch Association, has been awarded a grant from County Councillor Tom Thacker.

Welcome funding
The funds will be paying for new software that will assist in the Centre’s administration, including creating and sending out invoices, recording hire details, registering bookings and creating reports as well as many other tasks.

This will free up some time for the Centre Manager to concentrate on the development of more community projects.

Popular facilities
The Centre houses a large hall, a smaller side hall, a meeting room, a fully equipped kitchen, disabled facilities and an outside decking area, with car and cycle parking immediately adjacent. It is suitable for a whole range of functions from clubnights and indoor markets, to business meetings and wedding receptions. Throughout the week a number of classes and groups also use the facilities and many events are held ranging from concerts to film nights using the high-quality AV system.

The Whitchurch Association thanks Cllr Tom Thacker for his generous support.

    More good news. The Gill Nethercott Centre has moved on a request by a parent resident that we have somewhere for families to sit to enjoy the passing waters along the carrier downstream from The Silk Mill. The symbolic seat sponsored by Muriel Hirst will be installed, hopefully by local labour. A meeting with Barry Jackman and the Basingstoke and Deane Officers empowered Graham Burgess to proceed with the design and installation. It is anticipated that like the Tryst Seat and the Fish Seats on the Millennium Green the end result will be a creative work of art and a resilient amenity resource of low maintenance for years to come.
