The Future - Post-pandemic
The Centre at Benson Oxfordshire is temporarily closed. Due to the uncertainty in respect of the pandemic during this winter we have decided not to actively fund raise until the spring. We will be organising events early in 2022 which will be published here and in our calendar page.
Do keep a look out here for event news.
We are temporarily closed but the Millstream Community Hub is there to help those in need in our local area.
The lesson that we have learned from the crisis is that there will always be a small number of our community who will need outreach help and we will continue this service.
With a growing elderly population, and our aim to help people maintain their independence as long as possible, we see a real need to expand our Centre. We have already spent much time planning an expanded and refurbished building with a lounge extension. We have outline planning permission and approval from our landlord SOHA.
We have now appointed local architects Matthew T Young to finalise our detail design and prepare tender documents. Subject to successful grant applications we plan to start work later this year.
