Do poorly

  • Use of YMCA umbrella

  • Charging groups for usage

Top issues

  • Keep the place open
  • Pay the bills (costs £14,000 per year)
  • Replace funding, so as to support part time/full time manager to increase opening times and usage
  • Option to relocate to different building
  • Like to reach groups in-between youth and senior citizens Decorate the place
  • Get outside the building (signage, more acceptable appearance)
  • Create drop-in (e.g. libraries closing, provide computer access for a centre so people claiming benefits).
