Rosebery Community Centre is a Charitable Company Limited by Guarantee.
This independently run, multi-cultural Community Centre is situated between the Town Centre and Loughborough University. The area is made up of mainly terraced houses occupied by a wide variety of people from young families and students to the elderly (many of whom have lived here all their lives).
The Centre has three free standing buildings, all used for a variety of activities.
There are three rooms for hire in the Main building, Main Hall, Beale Room and the Coffee Lounge. All have kitchen facilities. The Beale Room and Coffee Lounge also have White boards for training purposes.
The Spectrum Centre is situated behind the main building which stands independently with its own kitchen facilities and accessible toilet, baby change facilities and White board.
The Old Mission Church stands at the side of the main building and is an ideal facility for Dog training, Morris Dancing and Boxing Clubs. It has its own accessible toilet.
We have parking facilities for up to 26 vehicles. Two of which are for Blue Badge holders.
The Centre is used by a wide number of groups of people. During the day we have number of groups i.e. Stroke Clubs, Fitness classes, art groups. In the evening the Centre is hired and used by variety of groups (see What’s On list), these are our Member groups. The Centre is also used at the weekends for private parties, weddings, discos, jumble sales etc.
The Centre is run by a Board of Trustees made up of representatives from all user member /associated groups. We are also supported by individual members who live in the area. We are mainly self-funded, although we do receive a small grant from Charnwood Borough Council as a Strategic Partner to assist in the running of the Centre.
