The Bourne Community Hub
— Coming Soon —
The Bourne Community Hub will have something for everyone, whatever your age or interests.
There will be a new pre-school for up to 50 children with a safe garden. A new play park on the green opposite the youth centre site was built in March 2020, following feedback from children and young people on what sort of play equipment they would love to have. The hub will also have brand new facilities for the youth club, plus a community café where you can meet friends or join a group such as arts and crafts. The hub will host various events in the activity hall such as keep fit, yoga, table tennis, dance and sports and exercise. There are also a number of other rooms in the building available to organisations and individuals to hire that can also be used to offer advice on money, education, jobs and training and health. We are so pleased that a number of organisations have said they want to run services from the Hub.
Back in 2015 the Bourne Community Group asked the Poole Communities Trust to work with them to develop a Community Hub. This collaboration led to detailed discussions with the Council on how the project could be built on the site on the old youth club on the corner of Northmere Drive and Arne Avenue. After detailed discussions we appointed a local architect to develop proposals to meet the needs of the local community that had been identified through consultation. In October 2018 we received planning permission. We also began to talk to partner organisations who were interested in running services and activities from the Hub once built., including Citizens Advice, Police , Housing support, training and job support and health advice. At the beginning of 2019 we started our fund raising. By the end of 2020 we had raised over £1.9m and hope to be able to start construction of the new Hub in 2021.
Below you can see an amazing virtual walk around of the new Bourne Community Hub.
