Aims of Walkley Community Centre
Walkley Community Centre is a beautiful Edwardian building which was established to promote and advance the availability of education and in the interests of social welfare to provide facilities for recreation and leisure time occupation in order to improve the quality of life and for the benefit of the inhabitants of the Walkley area without distinction of sex or of political, religious or other opinions, by associating with the local authorities, voluntary organisations and inhabitants in a common effort. It has an interesting history, and today continues to provide a home for a wide variety of activities & events enjoyed by people of all ages within the Walkley community and beyond.
