May 2019 – Rebuilding the Hall at the Leisure Centre can now go ahead!

SUCCESS, TO THE TUNE OF £196,924.75.

Rebuilding the Hall at the Leisure Centre can now go ahead!

Grants have been awarded to enable the work to be done through July and August this summer. The hall will remain a multi-function room of substantial size, our unique selling point in the area. We can host sports and social events and now it will all be to a much higher standard.
There will be a fresh look outside, with new insulated exterior cladding, walls and roof, and large feature windows. Inside, we plan complete redecoration, with a purpose-designed sound system, acoustic baffles, air conditioning and lighting to cover the various requirements of our regular and occasional users. We will be able to black out the windows to revive the community cinema, but need a little extra funding and a person to lead that.

This is only the start. Phase 2 begins as soon as we have drawn breath and can develop the plans for the rest of the building. Would you like to join a winning team? There is still a lot to consider and new ideas would be very welcome, and new friends to share the fun. We will be holding an information event soon, so look out for that. It is your community centre, for you to enjoy. Huge thanks to those who have contributed so much so far.

At this time especial thanks to the two bodies who are putting up the money:
FCC Communities Foundation Ltd – £100,000, formerly known as WREN, the landfill  fund and Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE), LEADER Coast, Wolds, Wetlands and Waterways, £96,924.75.

Keep up to date with all that is happening, our regular and irregular events, parties, functions etc, by bookmarking our Website, and liking our Facebook Page. We would really value your support.

– Richard Moore, chair, and all the committee, May 20th, 2019.

New CCTV System at Bubwith Centre

“We are delighted to announce that Two Ridings Community Foundation and East Riding Crime Reduction Fund ( have awarded us a grant to enable us to upgrade our CCTV system to modern standards.

The East Riding Crime Reduction Fund has been established by the East Riding Community Safety Partnership, with funding provided by the Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner and aims to provide grants for projects that will provide sustainable solutions to help reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in the East Riding of Yorkshire.    

This will be a massive improvement to our facilities, and together with upgrades to our disabled toilet and sports officials changing room, our kitchen and our lounge area, this will make Bubwith Leisure and Sports Centre a more attractive and safe venue for our users.

Work to upgrade the CCTV will be completed by early April 2019. STOP PRESS!!! Today all is up and running.” Barry Carpus – Secretary of the Bubwith Sports and Leisure Centre, April 2019.

The Jug and Bottles’s 1st Gin Festival

“The Jug & Bottle’s 1st Gin Festival was a huge success. The hall had been decorated with many botanics used in gin and Helen Chambers entertained with her lyrical vocals. 30 gins were served throughout the night and kept people trying the new gins to the market. Guests enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere at a new event to Bubwith.” Lou Smith, owner of The Jug and Bottle, 30th March 2019.

March message from our Chairman

“The playing field has benefitted hugely with ‘Verti-draining’ and other work for the benefit of our external users – Football and Cricket. The Tennis Club have various activities planned over the Summer and if you wish to try out the courts you can by paying for a key at the McColls Shop. Plus nothing beats a Summer evening of watching the Cricket with a glass in hand!!” Message from Dr Moore, Chairman of the Bubwith Sports and Leisure Centre, 26th March, 2019.


Another great night in the Centre enjoyed by a large audience, well done to Barry Webber and his team of volunteers” Dr Richard Moore, Chair of Bubwith Sports and Leisure Centre on the Huge event on 23rd March 2019.
