Craven Arms Community Centre (CasCA)
On the 1st April 2013 the Furniture Scheme took over the management of Craven Arms Community Centre which has been re branded as CasCA the initials for Community arts sports Craven Arms.
The Furniture Scheme recognises the considerable potential to turn Craven Arms Community Centre in to a self-financing vibrant hub at the heart of the Craven Arms Community.
As well as its general use as a community centre, there are three defined aspects to the centre which make it a wonderful asset for the community and give it the potential to be financially viable: the sports hall; the conference facility; the training/catering kitchen. With some concentrated marketing and partnership working all of these have the potential to be developed beyond their current usage.
As well as the main halls, Shropshire and Welsh Mountain (Sports Hall), CasCA has three smaller meeting rooms for hire.
CasCA is now open Monday to Friday from 9am to 10pm and we hope to extend this to weekend opening soon. This is an exciting opportunity for The Furniture Scheme and we plan to build the activities and cafe of what is already a lively centre. It will be a place where even more local people feel able to drop in, especially on Wednesday. We also hope to deliver a range of training courses and support the development of social enterprise. Look out for regular progress updates on our website” Jean Jarvis, MBE CEO, the Furniture Scheme.
