I use the centre on a weekly basis for my boxfit classes, which are an essential part of keeping fit for me. We also hired the centre for my Daughter’s wedding a few years ago, it is easily accessible with lots of parking for our guests out the front. She had a great day and when my son gets married next year we hope to hire the centre again
We used to have real problems finding a hall that was bit enough and accessible enough to hire for our yearly events. There are not many places in this area which offer what Bushmead Community centre offers. It’s a friendly place to go as well, well run and the staff are great.
