About Us

Our Community Centre opened in 2014 in the middle of Pinnocks Way and we’ve been developing it ever since.  Our aim is to build up our community, by organising communal events, by providing a venue for local clubs, meetings and private parties, and by giving local people the chance to work together for the good of the community.

Who’s Who

Office staff

On the front line of Community Centre life, you’ll find the following members of staff….

Administrator [deancourtcc@gmail.com]

Our administrator is the master of the Dean Court inbox, taking care of all our booking enquiries and general admin; if you have a Community Centre query, look no further.

Rachael Monks Centre Manager [rachael.deancourtcc@gmail.com]

Rachael is charged with the smooth running of the Centre, reporting back to the Trustees. As well as keeping an eye on bookings and behind the scenes activities, Rachael is continually working with community cohesion in mind and figuring out how best Dean Court Community Association can serve the needs of local residents.

Julie Smith Finance Administrator [finance.deancourtcc@gmail.com]

Julie is our number cruncher, responsible for invoicing our customers, reconciling takings from Community Centre events and making sure our finances are in tip-top order. If you have any queries regarding your invoice, then Julie is the one to call on.



The office team can’t take all the credit; the real cogs keeping the Community Centre turning are our eager band of volunteers. United by a large helping of community spirit, these folk are at the heart of the Centre. If you’re interested in joining in the fun, head over to our volunteering page [link to page] and find out more. If you’re new to the area it’s a great way to meet people, but even if you’ve lived here for years it’s never too late to start!

Meeting once a month, the Trustees are crucial to our existence. We literally couldn’t operate without them. This specific group of volunteers make managerial decisions, balance the books and generally ensure all the i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed. The current board of Trustees is made up as follows:

  • Anna Pearson (acting Chair)
  • Derek Rawson (Treasurer)
  • Judy Roberts (Health and Safety contact)
  • Emma Bartlett
  • Brian Dent
  • Bryan Goudman
  • Morwenna White

If you would like to get in touch with the Trustees, please email the office on deancourtcc@gmail.com using FAO Trustees in the subject line so we can direct your message accordingly.
