With grateful thanks ....

The Refurbishment Programme of the Centre continues apace with almost all of the main Windows on the first floor and the entrance doorway now completed with new Double Glazed PVC Windows. 

We are especially grateful to NEMBRA (see below) for their generous donation of £5,000 towards this part of our Refurbishment Programme and for the donation of almost £1500 from The Rotary Club of New Milton, which enabled us to complete the second very large window in the Festival Room.

A personal donation from Councillor Goff Beck and grants from Hampshire County Council via Councillors Mel Kendal and Alan Rice have helped us to start to transform the appearance and ambience of the Centre as well as reducing the costs of heating considerably. We are also grateful to The New Milton Friends Group who have also made a substantial donations towards our Refurbishment Programme.

The installation of a new Lift to the 1st Floor is now complete, making access to the upstairs rooms much easier for the less able.  Our special thanks go to Phyllis Inglis BEM for her generous donation in making this large capital project possible.

Our thanks to all who have helped and to many of you who have supported our Fundraising Events so far.  See below for outline details of more exciting events, many of which will contribute to the Fundrasing Targets.   The Centre now turn its attention and efforts towards the complete renovation of the Kitchen Facilities at the Centre and initial funds for this element have been gratefully received from New Milton Sands W.I and from The Jubilee Singers.

Please continue to support this worthy cause and help us make this unique Centre something that the Town and all the Residents can be proud of.

NEMBRA - The New Milton, Barton on Sea & District Residents' Association presents a Cheque for £5000 to The Memorial Centre

Tony Jarrett, the Chairman of our Residents' Association hands a Cheque for £5000 to Ros Bowles, the Chairman of The Management Committee of The New Milton Memorial Centre. Also in this picture is Clive Rigden - a Trustee of the Centre.

This Presentation was made on Friday 13th December at the start of a major Fundraising Campaign by the Centre designed to upgrade and refurbish the increasingly popular facilities.  "This generous donation will go a long way towards replacing many of the windows and the entrance doors at the Centre and with the replacement of the lift almost finished, we are now seeking donations and organising fund raising events to completely replace the outdated kitchen facilities" says Mrs Bowles.

If you are interested in making a donation or would like to help us with the fund-raising activities, please email us now.
