Post Springhill Community Centre

A new Springhill School is currently being built on Exchange St.

LCC has put forward the following proposals:

* Retention of th reception building at Hannah St and the Infant building at Exchange St for community use (to be run by local voluntary management committees)

*Demolition of the junior building at Exchange St and creation of a recreational area

The success of these proposals will be dependent on developing viable plans for the use of the buildings and the identification of "umbrella" groups willing to take on the management of the buildings.

Some funding will also be needed to develop the recreational area and carry out any necessary repairs to the buildings, but LCC is committed to exploring the feasibility of these plans and of involving the local community at every step.

Further Information Michael.Ormerod@css.lancscc.gov.uk

Have you got any ideas as to how these facilities can be utilised?

The Out of School Club, which already uses the present Exchange St building is obviously top of the list.

What about using part of the facilities where older people of the comunity can go to learn the basics of computing?

There must be loads who would love to learn but don't know where to start..

I think it's an excellent idea. For any age group. The way things are going now, computer knowledge is going to be a necessity.

Surprising how many people in their 30s & 40s even have no computer knowledge. I'd volunteer too.

I know several retired people who now make great use of computers and the Internet.

In Blackburn (some areas), they have a scheme where they are providing free  computers to people who would otherwise not have access. Maybe they should start one in Accy?

If anyone has any genuine ideas for the use of the centre, they could come along to the next Springhill Network Group meeting.
20th August. 7.30pm, Fairfield St Community Centre.

You could air any other views there as well.
