To fix a deteriorating roof, windows & forecourt of the Tolmen Centre, preserving this special community and arts resource for years to come

by Tracey Clowes in Constantine, England, United Kingdom

The Tolmen Centre an iconic feature in Constantine village, has dominated the Fore Street sky line since 1835. A community space used by 300 Methodists each Sunday at its height of popularity. Sold in 1998 when the Methodist community had dwindled to just 7 is still today a community building used by locals, maybe not for religious ceremonies, but for events to celebrate baptisms, marriages, and past lives. A lively cafe and county renowned theatre with drama and music and a village Museum see visitors still coming together with a common focus. Host to two small local businesses and several keep fit classes means the Tolmen is a bustling space nearly every day of the week. HOWEVER - within the next 5 years the roof of the Tolmen Centre will need to be replaced. Many of the windows need either major attention or replacement and the front forecourt is full of potholes. The Constantine Enterprise Company (CEC), who own the building, have managed over the last 20 years of ownership to just about keep up with the smaller maintenance jobs but if we are to keep this magnificent village facility going for future generations it will require some serious work. As Chair of the CEC I am hoping to start the ball rolling by raising awareness and funds which will be used as a foundation on which to build support for this major maintenance project. Your donation today will enable us to match fund for larger grants which mean the roof will be replaced before we start seeing buckets catching drips in the theatre space! The Tolmen Centre is run entirely by volunteers who give hundreds of hours. We love the Tolmen Centre and are aware of how important it is to the community and the service it provides. It has been part of village history and needs to remain so for generations to come. Thank you and big hugs for supporting us with our project.
