making the property available for viewing, to inform the general public and providing an educational provision for the young people of Bridgend and its surrounds. We aim to provide a focal point in the local neighbourhood to meet and respond to the growing needs of ‘Community’ in the area.  We will offer a building that can be used by the public to meet in a safe, secure and fun environment making a positive contribution to the community.
