COVID-19 UPDATE: National Lockdown Affecting Most Groups


With the most recent announcement from Government to introduce another national lockdown, our community centre will have to temporarily close again for most of our activities and projects. The only groups permitted to run from today, pending any further clarification, will be:
Derwent Road Playgroup & Nursery and Friends of Meadowside Food Bank

Our Afterschool Club will remain online for now!

(If this changes, we will update the list.)

We are kindly asking for any donations of long-life food items (e.g. pasta, cereal, UHT milk, tinned goods) for the weekly food outlet which will help feed our most vulnerable families. You can drop-off donations on Wednesday mornings 10-12pm. We also want to know how this year has affected you, your family, and how you think our community should move forward. Our Coronavirus & Beyond survey is live now! All feedback will go towards shaping the type of activities and services on offer from Park Farm Community Centre in the future!

Take care and stay safe ☺️

MEET OUR TEAM

Centre Coordinator

Craig Fryer


My involvement in community engagement began when I finished college. I signed up as a volunteer at a community centre in Newton-le-Willows and loved the good work that the charity was doing to improve the lives of local people. That was ten years ago! During that time, I have worked in several charitable organisations and joined Park Farm ACYP Centre in November 2018.

CYP Project Coordinator

Susan Bold


Centre Support Worker

Hannah Bold


Originally from Billinge, I have worked as a community artist since 2007 and have been involved with the centre over the years, mainly leading arts workshops with various groups. I have also previously worked as a Community Organiser in the local area. Here in the office, I help with the smooth running of the centre on a day-to-day basis. You’ll find me helping set up rooms for groups, answering the phone and dealing with enquiries, organising room hire and payments and spreading the word about our activities through social media.

Caretaker & Maintenance Assistant

Ignacio Sansalvador-Castellanos


I have a diverse background working with the public and local community as a children's sports tutor, a swimming instructor and lifeguard. I also worked in venue maintenance and have volunteered with Park Farm Community Centre's holiday playscheme since 2016. I joined the staff team here in November 2018 as Caretaker and Maintenance Assistant and it's my job to maintain the upkeep of the building, provide evening cover and to make headway into improving the facilities over the coming years!
