Neighbour News: The Abbotshall Healthy Lifestyle Centre.
Six years ago, local residents raised over £500K in grants to install a fabulous modular building at the old Playing Fields on Abbotshall Road, which includes studios, meeting rooms, changing rooms and toilets. (The same team went on to save The Corbett Library. )
Many classes & services now use the Abbotshall Centre. The playing fields were re-seeded and local schools and sports teams use the excellent sports pitches each week.
This is a spacious, modern and clean facility which any community would love to have; Hither Green would be lucky to have such facilities in our own community.
The Current Situation: The anchor organisation has had to move on and Corbett residents are once again stepping up to save local resources. They have formed a new company to run the centre themselves, and need just £5k help to keep the centre going.
If you or your child have ever taken a class or played a game at the Centre please consider donating £10 or £20.
