At present we are fundraising to refurbish the Hilltop Community Centre facility. After consulting with hall users and the community the overwhelming response was that people were dissatisfied with the physical condition of the Centre with specific concerns around:
1. Poor ventilation / unbearably hot - especially in the summer, or when occupied with lots of people, or during exercise classes etc.
2. Outdated and dingy toilets.
3. Inadequate storage
4. Neglected / unappealing decor
5. Outdated and small kitchen space
Phase 1 (COMPLETED) toilet refurbishment and installation of air conditioning
In 2018, work on transforming the out-dated Hilltop Community Centre in High Wycombe into a vibrant community centre edged closer as WMCO were lucky to be awarded over £36,000 to modernise the dingy toilets and install air conditioning from Biffa Award with a contribution from Wycombe District Council.
Phase 2 (COMPLETED) storage extension
This phase was also a priority as we needed to extend the building to increase the storage, for hall user groups to store their equipment so they can work more efficiently and for us to store tables and chairs that hall users need to access on a regular basis safely and free up much needed space in the halls. We were lucky to be awarded £59,000 to add much-needed space for storage from Veolia Environmental Trust.
Phase 3 kitchen extension, internal decor improvement
The latter point (4) and (5) are now the focus of the remaining part of our refurbishment project.
Our fundraising target is £90,000 for Phase 3
