JOINT VENTURE REJUVENATES THE PRIVETT CENTRE

 

Situated mid-way between Alton and Petersfield the Privett Centre offers the opportunity for out of school learning for a wide range of people. It is low cost, comfortable short-stay accommodation for school, youth, family and adult groups. It is an ideal residential setting, supporting curriculum and PSHE work taking place in schools, youth awards and youth work projects. It provides accommodation for up to 29 with a self-catering kitchen, bunk beds mainly in bedrooms, a large common room, games room, and shower rooms all under one roof. There are two single rooms, one with disabled access ensuite bathroom.

It was becoming a little jaded when its condition came to the attention of the Basingstoke and Loddon Valley Lions Clubs. They recognised the need for some money and muscle. Enter Team Rubicon a group of ex Service personnel who are on call to assist at disasters around the world and who possess both the muscle and the skills. They are the guys we once thought we were!

After a joint assessment of the work needed and the cost of the materials, it was agreed that that the two Lions Clubs would share the costs of the materials (2500) and team Rubicon would do the hard graft.

We will be celebrating completion of the project on September 24th.
