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.
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.
