About Us

Built around 1842, Currock House is the oldest of the Carlisle Community Centre buildings.  The building and surrounding land was purchased by the City Council with a view to a housing development in 1931, over the next few years many people were interested in the possibility of adapting the bulding into a Community Centre and  on 6 October 1934 the building was officially opened as a Community Centre. This was believed to be one of the first community centres in England, over the years many alterations have been added however the main building still houses many original features.

 

In 1994 a party was held celebrating 60 years of the Centre being a part of the Community of Currock and both volunteers and staff look forward to many years ahead.

 

The Centre is run by a Voluntary Management Committee who employ four members of staff for the general running of the building and activities.

 

In the coming months we will have Dennis Periam giving a talk on the History of Currock, we are gathering any memborabilia on Currock and would ask residents to bring their photos, newspaper cuttings etc to the Centre.
