Contribution to the cost of providing a replacement water main for St Budeaux Community Centre. When the new community centre was built ten years ago, the builders used the old main to supply the Centre. This has fractured on several occasions and a new mains connection over some 80 metres of Highway land to the SWW network is needed. A quotation including obtaining all permissions has been offered and provisionally accepted. The St Budeaux Community Association which is responsible for the building is a charity and have requested help with meeting this bill.




It has been 3 years since Colebrook SW became custodians of the Affinity Sutton owned William Sutton Memorial Hall. We would like to invite the local community to celebrate this occasion and inform them of our progress in developing the Centre and what is on offer to the local community. We will be inviting partners and other community organisations to meet the community and advise on their offers. The event will also function as a HYS event.
