thegangThe Briardale Community Centre was created from a shared vision between the resident’s of Cowpen and Kitty Brewster, that vision, was to create a place where the two communities could come together to share, learn and create. Built on land just touching the border of the two ward’s, the Briardale was officially opened by HRH Princess Royal.

Since opening, the centre has had over 90,000 people through it’s doors, from as near as Cowpen and as far away as New Zeland.

The centre has played host to many different agencies, schools, colleges and organisation’s. From weekly weight-loss clubs, Youth Club, Training and Annual Meeting’s, there is always something going on within the Briardale.
