Neighbourhood centres

Neighbourhood centres provide a hub for local communities and host a range of activities.

We run two centres, Spring Lane in Canterbury and Lucerne Drive in Seasalter, Whitstable. 

Each venue has disabled access, free parking facilities, kitchens and CCTV. Friendly staff are on hand to show you around the building and in addition the following facilities are available:

  • overhead projector,
  • flipcharts,
  • multimedia systems,
  • TV, video and DVD,
  • photocopying service,
  • refreshments and catering (at competitive rates), and
  • internet access.
