A Special Message from the Trustees

A special message from the Trustees of Rosebery Community Centre

We hope you have enjoyed your visit at the Community Centre. Rooms and facilities are available for you to hire which we hope are of a very good standard and that that they have met your expectations.

The landlord of Rosebery St Peter’s Community Centre has recently started to charge rent of £15,000 per year. That is just over £41 per day. This put the considerable strain on the trustees to keep the centre solvent without considerably increasing the room hire rates.
Hopefully, you appreciate the centre and want it to be kept available for use. Options and negotiations are being considered to be able to maintain the centre available for your use and for other user groups who patronise us, without a significant increase in the fee structure.

Would you be willing therefore to make a contribution towards the centre to keep it running? You could do donate by cash, cheque or by bank transfer using the following details – Account number 00241124 Sort code 30-95-21.
Further entertaining ways to find money to contribute to our funds are shown below:-

If you are a UK taxpayer and you have not used up all your gift aid allowance, your gift could be enhanced by 25% from the government! This means that if you pay tax and you contribute say £10, then the centre would receive £12.50 from your contribution. A worthwhile way of enhancing your gift without any cost to yourself. For a full explanation and appropriate form, please contact us.
Do you have any old £5 or £10 notes? These are now not legal tender. However, we could use them and would be able to make full use of their value!
When going shopping decide that on your return, you will put aside particular denominations of coins, (they could be all your loose change for all your coppers, or any other particular denomination). On your return put your chosen coins in a tin or a jam jar and when the tin or jar is full bring it to the centre to contribute to our funds. You could change your coin on each shopping trip, cease your contribution on having a full tin or jam jar or keep it going for all your loose change and bringing us the tin full or jam jar full or whatever you have collected whenever you come to the centre.
Many people now use text to communicate on their mobile phones. Did you know that you can also use text to donate money to organisations of your choice? If you are interested in giving by text, please let us know and we will give you the appropriate number to use to donate.

Welcome to Rosebery Community Centre Ltd.

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.

Rosebery enjoys a positive and happy relationship with other Community                                Centres and Community Groups in Loughborough and our members and staff are                     involved with other groups and committees throughout the town.

At the present time we have four paid posts – Centre Co-ordinator, part-time Care Taker, Premises Officer and Security Officer funded by the Centre.
