Visitors to Chalvey Community Centre this week are keeping an eye on the future.

A week of drop in sessions from Tuesday to Saturday are offering a unique chance for people to talk to council officers and councillors about what they would like to see on the site.

The existing centre on the Green is due to be knocked down as part of a major plan to transform the site with a new school and a new hub.

The hub will bring together a range of services - retaining the Chalvey nursery school and Early Years Centre with library services and possibly including meeting rooms, adult education facilities, community group spaces, kitchen and function space for hire.

The feedback sessions were visited yesterday by Cllr Natasa Pantelic - cabinet member for social care and building project manager Leo Yousef.

Cllr Pantelic said: "We are reviewing all our community centres. We want to bring services closer to people."

As part of this the new Chalvey hub will include office space for some council staff and space for some important services.

The Chalvey Hub is being paid for by the Department for Education (DfE) as part of its funding for the new school on the site. The council will ‘top up’ this funding to create a larger space than the existing building.

There is a session tomorrow (Friday) from 9am to 4pm and Saturday 10am to 1pm.
