Welcome to the Preston Community Centre website. You'll find information about classes that are on throughout the week, events, our fundraising mission and how to hire the hall through the website.
The Community Centre is run by a small but enthusiastic team who want to see the centre thriving and being used by the local village and surrounding areas!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Did you know there are plans to update and revive Preston Community Centre? We are currently fundraising to hit a million pound target to bring Preston and surrounding villages a brand new centre!
We will be releasing more information about the centre and what it will offer you in the near future.
Have a question or an idea for a fundraiser? Get in touch via our Contact Us page!
We are incredibly lucky to have a recently installed defib on the side of our centre. Should you ever need one (and we really hope you don't) you can access the defib to the right hand side of the entrance door.
There is so much going on at the Preston Community Centre! We are lucky to have lots of variety with groups and classes held each week! See our 'What's On' page for more
Preston is recorded in the Domesday Book as consisting of about 60 households; quite a sizeable village in relation to the population of the British Isles at the time. However archaeological digs have established the existence of Bronze Age and Iron Age settlements within the existing parish. The church of St. Mildred’s was reputably founded by Saint Mildred in 700 AD and this church still retains evidence of Saxon stonework; as does the church at Elmstone.
Preston now is a flourishing village with beautiful old houses to a new housing development with a primary school, village shop, riding school, butchers, pub, garden nursery and bistro!
