Major Grant Awarded!

Updates on what’s happening at Dean Court!

We are excited and grateful to have received a provisional grant of £20,000 from OSCA (Oxfordshire Stronger Communities Alliance) to begin the restoration of the community centre once we have the go-ahead from the Vale of White Horse District Council. Our application was one of a handful from over 140 to be successful, and we thank them for keeping faith with us.

So before long we hope to be inviting you to a celebratory opening of a Community Centre that has uncovered the structural pillars on which the building “hangs”, reinstated the north-facing windows along the top under the fascia, allowing natural, non-directional daylight back into the space, inserted windows along the back, allowing supervision of the recently refurbished playground and discouraging anti-social behaviour, and installed updated disabled access.

If you have not already signed a petition for support, please do so using the form on the right.
