Main Hall Reopened for Bookings
As many of you will be all too aware our Main Hall has been out of use due to the damage we sustained to the roof covering as a result of storm Doris. The temporary protection was put in place very quickly after the storm saving a significant amount of internal damage and we are grateful for the speed and professionalism of EBL Group Ltd in their response. However we are still getting some water ingress and consequential remedial work will be required. Following a visit and report from their loss adjuster we reached an agreement with our insurers to proceed with permanent repairs. Careful consideration has been given to the most suitable technical solution taking into account current building regulations, energy efficiency and service life.
The installation of a new steel sheeted roof covering began on
28th March. The installation work was subject to a number of
factors, not least the weather, and it was anticipated the work
would take 2-3 weeks. The external work reached the stage where it
was watertight by the 7th April and following this the internal
electrical installations were tested and certified safe. We were
then in a position to reopen the main hall for use by the evening of
the 12th April. Other remedial work to the acoustic wall cladding
and ceiling tiles can now be planned accordingly.
We would apologise to everyone who has been inconvenienced by the hall being out of use and thank you for the understanding shown. A number of groups and individuals have even expressed their wish to contribute to the Doris Repair Fund that has been set up to help cover the uninsured elements of our costs. We are doing all we can to get the situation back to normal and appreciate the help that you give.
Frodsham Downhill Run 2017
Frodsham Community Association is delighted to confirm the twelfth Downhill Run will take place on Sunday 2nd July with principal sponsor Woodhouse Plumbing, Heating and Electrical Ltd.
You can enter on-line on our website here or pick up a form at Frodsham Community Centre. With only 250 places for runners we advise you enter sooner rather than later – it also helps with our planning and ordering of the right sizes of T shirts!! For those of you who have already registered to take part in the run the first batch of allocated run numbers is now listed on our website here.
The Frodsham Downhill Run will follow the usual route from the top of the hill to Castle Park and we appreciate that Forest Hills Leisure Club will warm us up and set us off.
Rotary in Frodsham & Helsby will welcome us at the finish with with their annual Festival in the Park.
All ages and all abilities are welcome to take part in the Frodsham Downhill Run but if you feel you are unable to run this year, and would still like to be involved, we need non-runners to run it too and make sure it all goes smoothly! Can you help marshal the route, hand out T shirts, cheer on the finishers or hand out certificates?
If you would like to help in that way, or any other way, please get in touch by telephone or email. You can also contact us through our facebook page /Frodsham Community Centre.

Frodsham Community Centre provides a base for local groups, and hires space for rehearsals, workshops, evening classes, family celebrations, children's parties and meetings.
The Centre is run by the Frodsham Community Association, and is governed by the FCA council made up of representatives of affiliated groups. We are a registered charity run by local residents. Our aim is to establish a centre which enhances the quality of life of local people by providing educational, arts and leisure opportunities. We want to create a place belonging to the community where people and groups can meet, socialize and network in a safe and friendly environment.
It is always important that a village or town has a sense of community. This has always been true in Frodsham and it was therefore a great asset when after years of planning and saving the Frodsham Community Centre was built in 1969 on a site in Fluin Lane.
