Borrowdale Institute is for the benefit of those who live in Borrowdale & for the visitors who love Borrowdale.
It is a Community Building for them to enjoy themselves within. A place to celebrate, to Learn, to get fit, to have fun.
It is 100 years old and in this time it has delivered all this and a lot more - for the people of Borrowdale. Films, Weddings, Birthday Parties, Youth clubs, Fell Running base, Hunt Balls, Suppers, fund raisers, competitions, Produce Shows - you name it. The "Tute" delivered.
The present Trustee Board has been given the opportunity of giving the old building a face-lift, a refit and a new look and new feel.
It will reopen in Spring 2021.
We have to raise a further £40,000 to pay for fixtures, fittings and furniture
For every £5 donated you will be entered into our fantastic give away where you will have 1 of 5 chances of winning a holiday in Borrowdale, These 2 night breaks have been very kindly donated by our generous neighbours at Seatoller House, Glaramara, Scafell Hotel, Royal Oak & Borrowdale Gates Hotel
