The Smeatons' Centre


The Smeatons’ Centre was built thanks to the Head Teacher at the time, who persevered over countless years to raise enough funds for this project.  The Smeatons’ Centre has two halls, both of which are available to rent.


The Smeatons’ Centre is run by a small group of people called The Development Group.  This Group was originally set up to help the Head Teacher at the time to manage the building of the much-needed school hall and Community Room; the Smeatons' Centre. Since then, this small group has continued to raise funds for hall repairs and maintenance, through renting the halls out for children's parties, exercise/fitness groups and, significantly to Went Valley Preschool which provides an essential service to young families in the villages. It has also made a small number of ‘community donations’, for example, money to help set up the Youth Club and most recently funds towards the auto winder for the village Church clock.
