Community centre 'gift' for local charity
by Tom Martin

WATERLOO Community Centre has been “gifted to the community” the previous owners Archdiocese of Liverpool agreed to hand it over to a local charity.

The building, which was formerly St Thomas of Canterbury Parish Centre, has been given to the Waterloo Community Association.

The charity has been managing it since 2006 but will now take on full responsibility after “much discussion and consideration”.

The Trustees of Waterloo Community Association and participants of the centre held a celebration event earlier this month with a Christmas-themed meal.

It was held in the Community Kitchen, which has received recent funding from Sefton Council and the South Sefton Clinical Commissioning Group.

Cllr Patricia Hardy said: “Waterloo Community Centre has shown fantastic vision and resilience and has developed an excellent community hub. It's great that all this hard work has been rewarded with the local community now owning the centre. I know it will continue to go from strength to strength.”

Waterloo Community Association will launch a fundraising campaign in the New Year in a bid to improve the building.
