The West End Centre was completed in April 2005 at a cost of around £120,000. Money was given by ERDF, Neighbourhood Renewal, Bradford Trident, Church Urban fund and St Oswald’s PCC. It was designed by Ronald Sims RIBA, and built by Allertons of Leeds.
Members of the church and the local community together with manager Christine Mann help to run and organise the West End and its activities, promoting social inclusion for all.
The Centre is open (Monday 9-1, Tuesday -Saturday 9-4) for:
- IT skills training, free of charge
- Gardening group
- Singing group
- Community Lunch: Wednesdays (£4 for a substantial two course meal)
- Arts Class
- Sewing group
All these activities are open to the whole community. Call in to Church (Southfield Rd entrance) to see what is going on. Or contact manager Christine Mann on 07853-240809.
Emergence from lockdown
We hope to start to deliver provision from 17th May depending how the Covid Roadmap progresses. Initially delivery will take place outside weather permitting. Risk Assessment of the situation is ongoing.
We are not intending to open provision inside the centre at this time. We may, weather permitting, hold groups outside the centre using the events tents. We will still observe the rules about numbers of people attending and social distancing. For now, our provision is all outside, either in local parks or at the Allotment. We are still supporting people on line, using social media and making welfare calls.
