Westfield Community Centre

We're working with St Peters Church who are transforming a 1960’s built Hall (recommended for demolition) into a new purpose-built centre - The Westfield Community Centre.

The centre sits at the heart of our biggest Yeovil estate, and will become a vibrant hub of the locality. The space will be built with meeting rooms, a community café, and modern facilities with full disabled access.
