Percy Community Centre
The Percy Centre therefore has a long history of serving the community in Bath and beyond. The Percy Community Centre was established in 1992 as an independent registered charity but its predecessor, the Percy Boys Club, was founded in 1940.
The Centre continues to provide free youth activities but also has a mandate which now extends to all age groups – from a regular holiday play scheme and the after-school club at St Andrew’s Primary School to providing exercise classes and individual foot treatment for the elderly and less mobile
The Centre offers affordable and accessible room hire in a central location to a wide range of groups, with facilities for sports, music, dance, education, training and IT together with a number of well-resourced meeting spaces.
The Centre is currently visited by around 400 people each week and funds itself. They host a regular schedule of around 25 different activities each week, including dancing, creative writing, parenting advice, welfare to work programmes, play groups and a wide range of sports and martial arts.
A grant of £500 has been awarded to buy new football goal posts for the outdoor space.
