Standbridge Lane Community Development Trust will present a needed presence within the Kettlethorpe area and will serve Kettlethorpe residents and nearby areas to join in planned activities or hire space for themselves.

Activities will include boxing, dancing, arts and crafts, education and a childcare provision. All activities will cater to all ages, races, sexes and Standbridge Lane Community Development Trust will adhere to provide services inline with community needs.

Standbridge Lane Community Centre is certainly a unique centre compared to any other community centre within the Wakefield district. Our strengths include the size of the building; being able to offer room hire and a permanent library. We also hold a great deal of outdoor space, this will enable us to hold summer fairs and galas.

Standbrige Lane will be seen as a centre of excellence for sustainable community development – community leaders will activity engage with the local community to raise issues about climate change and the need to reduce energy use in our homes and daily lives.

Overall Standbridge Lane Community Centre will have excellent sustainability through installation of renewable energy generation to reduce running costs and maximise the southern orientation by installing photo-voltaic panels.

The committee have a lot of work to do to make Standbridge Lane Community Centre one of the most engaging centres within the district, but we are focused and ready for the hard work.

We hope you can join us in making this centre into a pool of empowerment and education.
