In 1963 the dream was to build a proper brick structure was realised, almost immediately there had to be an extension, to cope with increasing numbers! But by the 90's there were a number of problems that needed sorting - not least the fact that it was not big enough!

'Latest Health and Safety regulations meant that we needed a new Kitchen, Toilets and a Heating System. Not only were we having to put extra chairs out every Sunday for the increasing numbers, at the same time cracks were appearing in the walls. We could have bodged it - but it wouldn't have lasted very long.' - John Watson. 

So a single storey community centre was envisaged. With a bit more thought (and money) this was transformed in to the 2 storey building we have today.
