Opening of the Castle Community Centre!

The Centre has been created from the former ballroom of The Castle Hill Hotel, now known simply as Castle Hill, adjacent to Sydney House (South Street) car park.The Centre offers a large, self-contained, multifunctional room with catering facilities, which is available for hire, either by the hour between 8am and 4pm or by sessions.
It is an ideal venue for small/medium functions and training seminars etc., and we hope that local groups and organisations will use it for regular meetings and social functions.
In addition to the administration office (01805 626100), booking details are available from The Great Torrington TIC (01805 626140) and The Café @ 1646 (01805 626146) all situated in Castle Hill, or from booking clerks, Susie and John Golightly on 07971651 938.
In addition to the Trust’s own funds, this refurbishment project was part funded by grants of £10,000 from The Big Lottery Fund – Awards for All and £18,000 from Coastal Recycling, through their Coastal Recycling Community Fund. We are very grateful to the support of our funders.
To celebrate the opening of The Centre, we will be holding an open day on Saturday 22nd April between 10am and 2pm. Everyone is welcome to come and have a look at this fabulous facility.
