We are open! (Hub)

As you may be aware we were delighted to finally open the Neyland Community Hub on Monday 7th September.

The build is now more than 90% complete and some key areas of the building have been handed over by the Contractors.

Covid-19 has meant we’re taking a very cautious, phased, approach to re-opening and keeping everyone safe is our priority.
Phase 1 : Multi-Function Hall

In this first phase we’ve focussed on the main hall which is now open. All users must be part of organised activity which must be booked in advance.

We’ve already had lots of interest and our first week has included Rika, Vibe School of Dance, VIP Class Acts and a return for the U3A with Table Tennis and Fitness Classes.

Lot’s of our sports clubs are prevented by regulation from starting but we know Rugby, Football and Bowls are all keen to get underway indoors as soon as they are allowed.

Anyone wishing to book the hall just need to register – please email neylandcommunityhub@gmail.com

Once we’ve set up your account you can log-in and book online here. (Click ‘Members Login’)
Phase 2 : The Lounge Bar

The Lounge Bar is now complete and looks fantastic. We had a ‘soft-launch’ on Friday (11th) and we’re planning (subject of course to tighter Covid-19 restrictions) a series of showcase events over the coming months so look out for those.

We anticipate opening to the public in October.
Neyland Athletic Club

The old Athletic Club, which has served the Neyland Community since the 1960’s was demolished this week. The site will be levelled over the coming week.
Next Period

We’re expecting to take formal practical completion of the Hub in October and at that point we hope (subject to Covid-19) open the facility in full to the public.

More immediately, the commercial kitchen will be fitted out this coming week – marking another important milestone.

That’s it for now but as always Adam if you want to know anything further in the meantime please don’t hesitate to give me a shout. I hope you’ve had a great weekend.
