Covid-19: Community Centre closure
Following Government guidance on Covid-19, the Community Centre is once again closed for general users. The Badger Farm Pre-school is still open and we would like to thank them for continuing to providing essential education for the children while sharing with and (temporarily) losing space to the Immunisation Centre.
Some of our regular hirers may be running at-home activities. Please contact the organisers to check.
Find out what we’ve been up to while the Centre was closed last year and read details of the measures we have taken to ensure the safety of all our users in our post: Community Centre will re-open as from August 31.
Covid-19 Immunisation Centre
Winchester Primary Care Network (Friarsgate, St Clements and St Paul’s Surgeries) are collaborating to deliver a Community Covid-19 Immunisation Centre at the Community Centre. This is based in the Bushfield sports hall and the newly renovated Clarendon room and the PCN are geared up to vaccinate 2000 patients per week, dependant on vaccine supplies. Please do not get in contact with the surgery or with the Community Centre for an appointment. You will receive a personal invite from your GP surgery to attend the Immunisation Centre. There is a strict priority list the PCN needs to follow.
Community Centre re-opening
We currently do not know when we will be able to open again for general users but we will update you as soon as we can, Do keep an eye on this page for any changes!
The Immunisation Centre will continue to be based at the Community Centre for the foreseeable future. This will mean that once we are open, we will have only two rooms available for general hire.
Covid-19 Information Hub
We continue to keep our Covid-19 Information Hub updated, so do check it for recent information.
Welcome to Badger Farm Community Centre
We are situated at the heart of the parishes of Badger Farm and Oliver’s Battery on the south-west side of the historic city of Winchester. Run by the Badger Farm & Oliver’s Battery Residents’ Community Association, the Centre has provided the ideal location for many of the social activities enjoyed by local residents since 1986.
A lively and active venue, the Community Centre hosts a varied schedule of events. Groups regularly using the facilities include a wide age range from new-born to the elderly covering areas such as art, dancing, exercise, sport, toddlers/pre-school, special needs and wildlife. The Centre has a warm and welcoming atmosphere and all rooms are bright, airy and good sizes. The four rooms available for hire provide an excellent venue and good value for money.
Community Centres play an important role in bringing local communities together. They offer a focal point for neighbourhood activities and a base for local groups. We are proud of our Centre and its role within the community.
