The Strategic Director – Enterprise, Community and Resources, presented the Board with information on the Council’s Community Centres Service for the period 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020.


            It was noted that the incorrect report had been published for this item but the correct one had been circulated to Board Members prior to the meeting.


It was reported that the Community Centres Service provided for the management and delivery of services from five buildings: Castlefields, Ditton, Grangeway, Murdishaw and Upton.  The centres delivered programmes of community activities with varying models of community cafes and service outlets.  It was noted that these centres provided a community hub, a central point at the heart of the communities where they were located, for residents to enjoy chosen activities and receive services in their neighbourhoods.


Members were provided with a summary of service performance which included centre usage and operating costs.  The report went on to include the profile for each community centre, which included key performance indicators to illustrate the performance of each over a three-year period.  They were also referred to Appendix 1, which gave examples of community centre activities and events in 2019/20, with internet links to the Council’s events page where photographs and further details on these events could be found.


RESOLVED:  That the report be noted.
