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.

Repair Café Winchester

We are working with other community groups to launch the new Repair Café Winchester.

Read more about this initiative here. To register what kind of items would be useful to have or learn how to repair, answer Winchester Repair Café’s questionnaire: click here or scan the QR code.

Repair Cafés are free meeting places and they’re all about repairing things (together). In the place where a Repair Café is located, you’ll find tools and materials to help you make any repairs you need. On clothes, furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, crockery, appliances, toys, et cetera. You’ll also find expert volunteers, with repair skills in all kinds of fields.

Fix It Yourself is a great new trend that helps you save money and the environment. So skill yourself up for sustainability and get involved in the Trend to Mend! After all, if Vogue agrees that Mending Has Never Looked So Good, you know you’re being Sustainably Chic.

We love hot chocolate. It's delicious and warms us up on a cold day. But can hot chocolate change how sound travels? Here's a great experiment from @WinSciCentre that you can try with the kids this weekend.

#Sustainable Oliver’s Battery's Big Outdoor Swap is tomorrow! Place your unwanted items (books, bags, clothes, toys, kitchenware) outside your home from 1–4pm. It’s a perfect chance to have a clear out and pick up some #preloved items for free, plus it’s good for our planet! ♻🌍

Mature drivers generally have fewer #Accidents than young ones. But as we age, gradual changes diminish our ability to deal safely with some situations. @hantsconnect offers a confidential skills appraisal for drivers aged 60+.

#Winchester Good Neighbours support people who need help with transport to/from medical appointments. They're looking for drivers with their own car to support/expand this much needed service. Call 0800 6126 480 or register your interest via @cfirstorg.


The Pinder Trust will be holding an open day on Saturday 26 November with the aim of showing the public and families of patients who use the facilities first-hand the state-of-the art #winter hydrotherapy centre.
