Community centres

Community centres are a great place to meet, hold social, cultural and educational activities for all ages and a place for people to get involved in community life.  

Check out what's happening at your local community centre. You can ask about availability online on each community centre page.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are taking a cautious approach to the reopening of community centres, given the relatively high infection rate in Bedford Borough. Therefore, it has been decided that community centres should remain closed for at least 3 weeks from 2 July 2020 and will only be allowed to reopen once a comprehensive risk assessment, based on latest government guidance, has been agreed by the Council.

The situation will be reviewed no earlier than 23 July 2020.

Independent community centres

In order to provide a sustainable future for community centres, proposals have been put forward for ownership and delivery of them to be transferred to community groups, local entrepreneurs or businesses, independent of the Council.
