News update from Brockworth Link and Brockworth Community Library

We wanted to share our great news with users of our community library. From 29th March 2021, a major refurbishment begins at the library. This refurbishment should last approx. 6-8 weeks. The library and the charity offices will be completely renovated and catapulted into the 21st century. Whilst this change is taking place, Brockworth Library and the charity office will relocate to within Brockworth Community Centre. The Parish Council have very generously offered space in order for the library to continue to provide a service to the community.

From 12th April, 2021, you will be able to find the library operating in the entrance lobby of the community centre, during the following hours:

  • Monday: 10am – 1pm, 2pm – 4pm
  • Tuesday: 10am – 1pm, 2pm – 4pm
  • Wednesday: 10am – 1pm, 2pm – 4pm
  • Thursday: 10am – 1pm, 2pm – 4pm

No phone line to Brockworth Link or the library will be available, please contact us via email on office@brockworthlink.org.uk or see Annie in the reception area.

You will find Annie Fuller in reception, receiving and issuing library books.

Monica, our General Manager, will be located in the Youth Centre office, should you need her.

The range of books on offer is limited, as most of our stock has had to go into storage. We hope you will find what you need for a few weeks. During this time, we will not be able to process any book reservations.

We will regularly update you on how the refurbishment is going.

Thank you for your patience and we hope you are as excited about this as we are!

National Lottery Community Fund grant

Brockworth Link is delighted to announce that a grant has been received from the National Lottery Community Fund.

This grant will enable us to ascertain the needs and wishes of the community for future activities, events and facilities available.

We are extremely grateful for this grant as it will enable us to acquire information that would have been difficult to afford through our normal funding channels.

Brockworth Community Library Refurbishment

Brockworth Community Project has recently been awarded a grant from Gloucestershire Environmental Trust. This grant has enabled the Project to undertake some building work at the Community Library.
This work has involved moving the kitchen to a new location within the building and completely refurbishing it with new units, flooring and decoration.
Two cloakrooms have been upgraded, a new store room has been created and access to all these new rooms has been improved.
The trustees of Brockworth Community Project are extremely grateful to Gloucestershire Environmental Trust for their support and generosity.
Pictures of refurbishment to follow shortly…

Developments at Brockworth Community Project

The latest development from Brockworth Community Project is to rename our building, offering services to the community.
The building will now be known as The Link @ Brockworth and from this building we will continue to offer all our previous services.
Do come along and use our library, IT Suite, music groups, language groups and many many more.
Come and meet our friendly staff and link with your community.

Developments at Brockworth Community Project

During the last few months, we have been busy making alterations to the layout of the building. The Project’s office has been moved to the front of the building, into the room that had been used for storage and meetings. The old office space has been completely redeveloped thanks to a capital grant from Tewkesbury Borough Council and is now being rented to Cornerstone Church.
Cornerstone Church will be having their official launch on 23rd April 2015.

Other exciting developments include the refurbishment of the IT Suite which took place at the end of last year.
