Bennett Centre Frome
Who we are
The Bennett Centre, set in the heart of Frome, has been serving the community since it became St John’s Church Hall in 1928, but the building was no longer up to date and we were aware that it could offer more than its one big hall. So we are redeveloping the Centre to offer four meeting spaces and at the same time bring its facilities up to modern-day standard.
A big project, but we are delighted to report that we now have three meeting spaces available plus all the toilets and the kitchen in operation, and, when Covid isn't interfering, most of the building is busy and vibrant once again.
We still have work to do to bring every area into full use. A key task remaining is to complete the cloister area and install direct access to this area from outside.
We are also keen to maintain the finished parts of the building to as high a standard as possible, so we are concentrating our immediate fundraising efforts on raising £3000 for specialist floor cleaning equipment: washer, scrubber and polishing machines. Any assistance you can give with this would be hugely appreciated.
Thank you very much for your help.
