We have had to defer our re-opening from the end of May to Monday 6th July due to insurance work as a result of major water leaks. We look forward to welcoming everyone back in July.
Membership subscriptions now due
Membership costs just £5 a year and helps support the cost of operating the Centre. As well as supporting the Centre, members are entitled to reduced price tickets at events such as our film nights, and can vote at our AGM.
Our membership year runs to 31 March, and renewals are now due. This year for the first time you can renew membership online. We are encouraging online renewal as our reception area will still be closed to the public for some weeks due to building works. Thank you for your support.
Centre currently closed
We hope to re-open at the start of July with a wide range of socially distanced, safe activities. In the meantime we are pressing on with the conversion of our former library space into an exciting new facility. More news here soon!
We are now taking room hire bookings for our safe, airy and clean venue. All rooms can operate in socially distanced setups with ample ventilation and frequent cleaning of all hard surfaces, door handles, toilets etc.
Contact us to enquire about a booking for your group or event.
Read What's On Magazine online
Our 'What's On' magazine is normally distributed to homes in the Lyndhurst, Emery Down and Bank area area. However under lockdown we decided not to risk anyones health by distributing it in print. We have made it available online:
You can view the full colour 48 page magazine here: view "What's On-line"
We would like to express a big thank-you to our advertisers who have supported us through the past year.
We look forward to resuming delivery to your door next month.
COMMUNITY CENTRE NEWS
We are looking forward to opening again at the end of next month. When we re-open we will in place all the practical things that need to be done in order to welcome people back with the minimum of risk such as deep cleaning all rooms, using screening at the reception desk, directional barriers and floor stickers, sanitizer stations and a one- in, one-out system for the toilets.
We operate a thorough risk assessment and protection regime: Covid Statement

Lyndhurst & District Community Association – Annual General Meeting
The AGM was postponed due to lockdown. When restrictions are lifted so that we are in a position to hold a meeting we will set a new date. We are intending to hold a combined 2 year AGM covering the past 2 years.
Films and Music
Films will resume as we are allowed to show them!
Following the success of our October “Trial Return of Film Night", which was very well received by all, we planned to show in November the film, “The Good Liar,” first scheduled for May. Unfortunately, this film has had to be cancelled for a second time to comply with government regulations.
On a more positive note, we look forward, hopefully, to welcoming you to our February screening, but in the meantime your ideas for future films will be most welcome. Please email the details to: email@example.com
