A Norwich community centre is closing during half-term week to allow for the roof to be replaced. 

Cadge Road Community Centre will be closed until February 18.

Scott Porter, the programme manager at Henderson Trust said: “Henderson Trust has been managing Cadge Road Community Centre for around four years at present.  

“The roof is due to be completed by mid-February and after this date, we will be welcoming user groups back to the centre.” 

Many people in NR5 have fond memories of the community centre on Cadge Road.  

From dance classes in the 1990s, to a modern silver diners club where elderly people can meet up for lunch and socialising, the community centre has been loved by the community for generations.  

And now, Henderson Trust is putting money into it to continue their use of the building for enriching the community.
