Kesgrave Community & Conference Centre Update

The team at KWMCC hopes that you are all well and starting to get back to some sort of normality. We miss seeing all your smiling faces, especially our regular hirers who have become an important part of the KWMCC community.

Things are developing slowly within our sector and currently the community centre remains closed, in accordance with government guidelines.

During lockdown, we have taken time to update maintenance and refresh our function rooms. New COVID-19 measures are in place and a deep clean of all areas of the facilities has been a priority so that we can open safely.

Work has been completed on a fabulous new Pétanque pitch. Special thanks to SPARK and the Kesgrave Rollers who through funding have made this great outdoor activity available for all the family to enjoy. We are looking forward to offering pay and play fun as soon as we are able to open. Resurfacing of the tennis courts has begun, which will put Kesgrave on the map for state-of-the-art tennis facilities in this area.

We continue to progress quietly behind the scenes where possible and under strict measures. Skeleton staff are now working remotely on a part-time basis to help with your enquiries and bookings. We continue to work on plans for outdoor events and activities that can be easily managed under the guidelines.

Due to popular demand, our Christmas party nights are still scheduled to take place. If government guidelines allow, we will be celebrating in style at KWMCC this December.  Email to provisionally book your table and find out more. Visit the KWMCC website for dates.

We are now able to take bookings and enquiries by email only to:

Contact us now to book your special celebration, meeting, event or training.

You can now check availability online for each of our function rooms and indoor and outdoor sports facilities.

We look forward to seeing you all very soon but in the meantime the trustees and staff at KWMCC continue to wish you and your families all the very best.
