Walsworth Community Centre

Built in 1852, the Community Centre started out as the old Walsworth School. The building has retained much of its character and charm over the years and now caters for every age group.

The Walsworth Community Centre is also available for hire for social occasions, meetings, and for those wishing to start a regular interest group.

The Community Centre is currently administered by Walsworth Community Association, a registered local charity.
