Our Community Centre

Dunkirk Community Centre is based in the old primary school, a lovely Victorian building in Dunkirk, Nottingham. Some 700 people use the centre each week, comprising all ages and cultures, for meetings, training, celebrations, fun and cultural exchange. Recent refurbishment means that the centre is well equipped, well maintained and fully accessible for disabled users. There is a modern kitchen, a 45 place car-park and rooms equipped for trainings or meetings. We have a variety of rooms available for hire, including a main hall and four classroom sized rooms. The hall and one of the rooms have hardwood floors making them very suitable for activities such as dancing or martial arts. Our other rooms are carpeted, making them more comfortable for other activities.


Dunkirk and Old Lenton Community Association

The Dunkirk and Old Lenton Community Association, a registered charity, manages the centre. This group of local volunteers, together with a small staff, bring all their skills and hard work to provide facilities for people to run activities. The organisation was formed way back in May 1947, met in the school in the evenings, and, when a new school was built, succeeded in taking over the centre as a fully-fledged community centre. It has since become a true focus for the community and a very valuable local resource. We are supported by Nottingham City Council Area 4 grants and Castle Cavendish.
