Bailliefields Community Hub

We believe we can make an even bigger impact by continuing to leverage the commercial lease and relationships to improve the community facilities and lives of the people living in the local area.

To achieve this Bailliefields Social and Community hub’s vision is:

  • Build on the work the club currently does with disability motivating groups and individuals to be part of an environment that is inclusive, safe and creates a sense of belonging.
  • Encourage participation in sport and social activities of the local elderly community that will tackle isolation and loneliness.
  • Connect the local community to the surrounding natural environment of Rumford, Ercall Woods, the Union canal and local cycle and walking paths.
  • Promotes growing, biodiversity and cooking through community allotments.
  • Increase and enhance inclusion for everyone regardless of circumstance, ethnicity and social background.
