Hanham Community Centre

Our mission at Hanham Community Centre is to provide a clean, safe and welcoming venue to the community which, through it’s facilities and activities, allows people to learn and develop skills, socialise and gain friendships.

FUNCTION ROOMS – We have two function suites, each with their own private bar and stage area. The larger (Elbrow Suite) can hold 200 people for a function, and is typically used for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays as well as concerts. The smaller (Wessex Suite) holds 120 and is used for wedding receptions, quiz nights, birthday parties etc. The Elbrow Suite has a fully working stage with hemp lines, curtains and lighting grid.
The Lounge Bar can also be hired for private functions, and is typically used for funeral receptions, christening receptions as well as corporate events.
We also have a large field adjacent to the premises which can be hired in the summer – typically for private parties, fetes and car boot sales.

MEETING AND ACTIVITY ROOMS – We have on offer a range of activity rooms suitable for a range of meetings and activities – the larger ones (Avon, Whittucks, Ridgeway) are popular for physical activities such as keep fit, Salsa and yoga – as well as larger corporate meetings and training; while the smaller rooms (Gloucester, Wesley, Somerset) are popular for small meetings, seated activities such as lace making, chess, card crafts etc.
The Whittiucks and Ridgeway rooms have a hearing loop installed.
REGULAR ACTIVITIES – There is a vast array of regular activities offered at this Community Centre. As well as our own sections and centre activities, there are many 3rd party activities which are held at the centre on a week-in, week-out basis. All of these we consider to be part of our core service offering to the community.
FACILITIES – All users of the Centre (whether members, hirers or the general public) also benefit from the use of the large Car Park, community facilities such as drinks machines and toilet facilities (including a Disabled Toilet). We also have an extensive Automatic Fire Detection System through the Centre, Internal and External CCTV and access control to provide a safe and secure environment. For most activities and functions there is also a Duty Manager on-site to support and assist you.

We also offer Wifi access from some parts of the Centre – we would consider expanding this if there was sufficient demand. We will also be providing basic internet access from a PC in the Coffee Lounge – which will be available to all. The Ridegway and Whittucks Rooms both have a Hearing Loop installed, funded in 2008 by the Parish council. Both these loops offer excellent assistance to those with hearing difficulties who have a hearing aid, which they can turn to the ‘T setting’ to benefit from the amplification provided by the loop system.

Minky Kitten Cakes

No two celebrations are alike, and nor are any of our celebration cakes. Minky Kitten Cakes offers bespoke Wedding cakes and celebration cakes that add a magical taste to any occasion, weddings, birthdays and anniversaries to baby showers and corporate events.
We seek to make your celebration moment memorable through a personalised cake that is as unique as you are. We need your help to do that: you are our inspiration. We may add imagination, along with other quality ingredients, but you are our starting and finishing point.
You might want a realistic or fantastic scene created in intricate detail, an anniversary cake with recognisable characters, a birthday cake with familiar creatures or favourite sports, an elegant wedding cake or cupcake tower, the possibilities are endless.
Our website and our Facebook page show a wide variety of Minky Kitten cakes, and you will see that our cakes, like our clients, are all different.
If you are happy with your cake then we are happy. Some of our happiest clients have been the nine or ninety-year-olds who gasped with delight to see their cakes. Others are those who gave us a photograph or idea and then waited to see what we could create.
Some of the results are visible above so don’t hesitate, just celebrate, with the help of Minky Kitten Cakes. You can contact us via the website, by phone 07801511274 or by calling in at the Minky Kitten Studio.
