Refurbishment of the Derrygonnelly Community Centre to address local needs and offer a wider range of services.
The Organisation is a cross-community group established to provide a facility in the local area. Their aim is to advance social, cultural and recreational activities, with the object of improving the conditions of life for the local residents. The Community Centre is the only available community based facility in the village. The Group rent out the venue to community based organisations such as scouts, local youth club etc. The committee conducted a survey to identify gaps within local provision and to stimulate ideas on how best to utilise the Centre. The findings from a needs survey also highlighted a demand for additional meetings rooms, a fully equipped kitchen and larger space for hosting community events and youth based activities.
Funded under Axis 3, through SWARD, was awarded to refurbish the hall to include a large room and two smaller meeting rooms. The group hope to establish an after schools club, put in place a programme of activity for senior citizens and establish a conference facility in the Centre.
