The Social Club has been in the same building and alongside North East Abingdon Community Centre since it opened in 1984. It has a bar, pub games, quizzes, and special events at Christmas and New Year. All residents within the area of Twelve Acre Drive, Oxford Road, Norman Avenue and Radley Road could apply for full membership, and people outside could become associate members.
But in 2017, for financial reasons – I believe, the Social Club is having to close down leaving the Community Centre, and its clubs and societies, to use all of the building.
The Community Centre is used from Monday to Friday by Peachcroft Pre-School, so is well used. Members of the Committee would like to see the centre also well used in evenings and weekends by all people from the area to ensure the centre is still there for many years to come.
