About us

St George Community Centre is an affordable venue for a diverse range of groups and activities. From Tai Chi to Toddler Groups, there's always plenty going on. We have a Community Asset Transfer from Bristol City Council (who own the building) and all the income we generate is used to maintain this vital community resource.

  • You can commit to a 2 hour meeting every 6 weeks.
  • You are able to join our keyholder rota to open/close the centre for occasional parties and events.
  • You have skills that could help run this community building. At the moment we're particularly looking for support with marketing and fundraising.

This is a voluntary position, but we can promise plenty of tea and biscuits at meetings. Plus we are a friendly and supportive bunch! If you're interested in joining us, please email us at explaining how your skills and experience could help St George Community Centre.

If you'd like an informal chat please call Tamsin Harcourt, chair of the management committee, on 07531 751 997.
