Welcome From the Chairperson

A warm welcome from Praa Sands and District Community Centre to all residents and visitors alike. The centre is run by a team of local volunteers as a charity (reg. 294357), to provide the local community with a safe and welcoming facility hosting educational, entertainment and other activities for all ages and groups. We are always looking for new ways to increase the usage of the centre, and would welcome your ideas and inputs for extending the centres usage.

Centre Users

Throughout the years the Centre has been used by many groups from a broad section of the community. Today we host a range of activities ranging from a Gardening club, Short Mat Bowls,WI, and The Lunch Club, Zumba, Adult Education, Slot Car Racing, Clinical Pilates,and Art Classes. The Centre is also available for hire for Children’s Parties, Celebration Parties and fund raising events.

We have been privileged to have Carn to Cove entertaining us with some world class acts at the Centre. Please check out our forthcoming events section.

Centre History
The Centre began in 1984 by the residents of Praa Sands & district who needed to provide a suitable location for a visiting doctors surgery as residents had to travel to Marazion to see a doctor.  Praa Sands Residents Association held a public meeting from which the Germoe & District Community Centre Committee was formed. The Committee raised funds & purchased the then disused Germoe Telephone Exchange. And so the Community Centre, with doctor’s surgery, was born.

The Future

The Community Centre continues to provide a valuable venue for the community of Praa Sands and surrounding area. The Management Committee remains committed to improving the Centre and its facilities for the benefit of all who live in the Community.
