The clear message from the earliest conversations with residents was that people really wanted a local place at the centre of the community where everyone could meet, hold events and engage in activities.
After hearing in 2017 that Wormley Community Centre might be coming available, negotiations started with Broxbourne Council and, four years later in 2021, to our utter delight we were given the keys to the Community Centre.
Work to refresh its presentation started immediately and we were so pleased to open the (post covid) doors in the summer of 2021 to the delight of the local residents. We look forward to many years of activities and events.

After 4 years of negotiating, we were delighted in 2021 to be given the keys to Wormley Community Centre and look forward to sharing many years of activities and events with our local residents.
The hall, studio and foyer are used to host various events, activities, advice and health surgeries that benefit the community. Some groups that meet or operate from the Community Centre are run by WTBL Partnership members or other volunteers. If you are thinking of setting up a group we can offer the foyer to you free of charge for the first month (subject to our terms and conditions) whilst you grow your groups membership.
When more space is needed, the Community Centre is used for events like The Big Lunch, Christmas parties, fun runs and activities for young people. Other WTBL projects that take place elsewhere include the Pop-up Cinema, music sessions, health support groups and the community allotment.
