Coalbrookdale & Ironbridge Community Centre Association
Coalbrookdale & Ironbridge, “birthplace of industry”, is a World Heritage site.
The Community Centre, based in a Victorian listed building, was established in 1998. It is a vital resource for all residents of Coalbrookdale and Ironbridge. Regular users include Cubs, Beavers, Scouts, Explorers, Play Groups, a Film Club and Gardening Club and classes for Tae Kwon Do, Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi. It is also used for meetings, presentations, live music and private parties. Rates are reasonable for hiring and there is lots of free parking. The Centre is run by a voluntary committee. Booking fees and an annual grant from the Parish Council cover day to day costs, such as heating and cleaning, but improvements are paid for by fundraising and grants. In 2013 the main hall had a major renovation with a new oak floor and soundproofed ceiling funded by grants from Biffa Environmental Trust, the Gorge Parish Council and by our own fundraising. In 2015/6 Veolia Environmental Trust, the Gorge Parish Council, Ironbridge Lions and our own reserves enabled us to improve the rest of the building. We now have a refurbished kitchen/bar area and separate meeting room, all with new flooring and wheelchair access. In 2017 the building was re-roofed by Telford & Wrekin Council, from whom the building is leased, and in 2018 grants from Telford 50 and the Big Lottery Fund allowed us to modernise the toilet areas on both floors.

The Centre is run by a voluntary committee. Booking fees and an annual grant from the Parish Council cover day to day costs, such as heating and cleaning, but improvements are paid for by fundraising. This, together with grants from SITA and the Co- operative Community Fund enabled us to fund things like central heating, new gates and fire prevention works.
