In 2018 the Old School Community Centre celebrated 20 years of having been saved for the community of South Brent and grown into a most invaluable and much loved Centre. But all of this has not happened without hundreds, if not thousands of man hours in working tirelessly to keep this building as accessible and vibrant as it can be for every age group. Considering it has the South Brent Breakfast and After School Club and South Brent and District Caring under it’s roof it truly is a “full lifetime facility“.
Are you looking to become more involved in your community as the Old School Community Centre needs an injection of new life blood! Would you like to support the new Action Plan, taking forward the Charity Review and enhancing this invaluable and much loved community asset?

Become a Member or Friend of South Brent Old School Community Centre (SBOSCC)
We welcome all members of the community to use and support SBOSCC in either of two ways – joining the Centre as a Member or a Friend. You are free to make use of all facilities in the Centre and attend classes or events of interest to you without joining as a Member or Friend but as a charity all subscriptions help us maintain the fabric of the Centre for the benefit of South Brent and the local community.
What is a Member ?
Membership is open to individuals, families or other organisations which support the aims of the charity. They need to pay a subscription that is set by the membership and the Annual General Meeting
A Member is able to take full part in any activities of the charity, including being able to vote at the the Annual General Meeting held in January of each year. Members hold a maximum liability of £1 should the charity be wound up.
What is a Friend ?
Friends are similar to Members but if you don’t wish to hold voting rights , or liability, then you can become “Friends” for the same subscription as Members.
The minimum subscriptions are the same whether you choose to be a Member or a Friend of the Centre:
♦ Individual £5 per year (Unwaged £2 per year)
♦ Family: £10 per year
♦ Individual Life Membership: £100
Please complete an application form, which includes a Gift Aid declaration, available in the main foyer of the Centre (or by downloading from here). Completed forms should be left with the Manager or posted in the letterbox outside the main door.
If you prefer you can also pay your subscription by cash or cheque when submitting your application form.

Become a Trustee
You can become even more involved in the running of the Centre and by becoming a Trustee. The number of Trustees of the Centre is currently considerably less than the maximum of 18 our constitution allows; it would be great to have more Trustees to help us realise our exciting ideas for the future of the charity and the Community Centre. It is rewarding and sometimes even fun !
So the Centre wants YOU to help it continue it’s success story. If you are interested and wish to find out more about becoming a Trustee please contact Mike Baines, Vice-Chair of Trustees, 01364 72559.
Become a Volunteer
If being a Trustee is not for you, we want to form the “Friends of the Community Centre”; a bank of volunteers who are there to help in all aspects of the Centre’s day to day life.
Have you time to spare and lots of enthusiasm….perhaps you have some of these skills you could offer !
♦ Finance and bookkeeping
♦ Painting and decorating
♦ Small scale building maintenance
♦ IT, websites and social media
♦ Event organising
Drop in and see Glyn, the part time manager working weekday mornings from 9:00 am – 12.30 am. Let him know you are interested and we can set up a friendly chat with a couple of current Trustees, and please spread the word!!
