Description

It was as early as 1936 that the idea of having a community centre in Wimbledon was first thought about and various exploratory meetings were held to discuss the matter over the next nine years until the Arts and Recreation Committee of the Guild of Social Welfare was asked to draw up a constitution for a Community Association. In January 1946 an inaugural meeting was held at which just over fifty Wimbledon organisations were represented. From this meeting the Wimbledon Community Association was formed. An open meeting was held in September 1946 to discuss the need for a community centre for Wimbledon. This was attended by J Chuter Ede, then Home Secretary in the Atlee government.


Company description
Operating from offices at the Guild in Worple Road, a full time Organising Secretary arranged a programme of concerts, activities and an annual Drama Festival, mainly at the Town Hall. Major projects were planned and executed for the Festival of Britain in 1951 and the Coronation in 1953. By 1950 an increasing use of the Guild's rooms was being made while at the same time a suitable site was being sought for a permanent centre. The Executive Committee regarded the provision of a community centre to be of prime importance. It had a direct bearing on the development and future well being of the WCA and, ipso facto, on Wimbledon's voluntary organisations together with those large numbers of residents who needed social, cultural and recreational activities outside of religious or political affiliations.
