Community First is now leasing this Havant Borough Council owned building. This move was necessary to ensure vital services continue to be provided by over 20 different groups working for the benefit of local residents at the vibrant facility.
Tim Houghton, Community First CEO, said “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to manage the Leigh Park Community Centre. It’s such an important and much loved facility and we look forward to working with local people and groups to generate new ideas and uses for the building.”
Leah, Beverley, Dan, Sue and the team will continue with the day to day running of the centre and we look forward to working with them.

On February 14th the Leigh Park Community Centre team, together with Off the Record, ran a family Valentine’s event for the people of Leigh Park. The event called Made with Love was a free afternoon tea put on by the Centre with lots of lovely cakes and treats generously donated by the Community Champions at Tesco Havant. Off the Record provided Valentine’s crafts for the children (and quite a few grownups!) where they could make flowers and cards for those they love. Find out how the day went …..

The most recent of our “LOVE LEIGH PARK” celebrations took place on 1st June …
This FREE Craft Cafe event, and the previous celebrations in March, have been possible thanks to a grant awarded by the Big Lottery Fund’s Celebrate programme.
Everyone in the community was invited, and there were lots of crafts to have a go at, a prize draw and goody bags, and refreshments throughout the day.
