On May 25th 1950 The Poynton Social Centre, as it was then known, was placed upon trust to “permit the same to be appropriated and used for the maintenance and improvement of the physical and mental training and recreation, social, moral and intellectual development and the well-being of persons resident in the Parish of Poynton-with-Worth in the County of Chester” These words are taken from the original trust deed signed by Joseph Higginbotham, Ezra Wainwright, Charles William Piggott and Francis William Openshaw.
Over the years since 1950, your Centre has undergone many changes, some lows, some highs but despite all those changes it is still your Centre, managed by a team of volunteer Trustees on your behalf. It is home to many community groups and classes and is available for you to hire for your community event or private party.
This last two years has seen much needed major investments designed to keep the fabric of your Centre secure for the future. So when you need a venue for your event, remember the Centre belongs to you as a resident of Poynton with Worth and by using it you are doing your bit to ensure your Centre is there for the next generation.
