We are sad to announce that Jordan, one of the fantastic gym team, is moving on from the Cambrian Community Gym. Jordan has been a valued member of the team for the past few years and we will miss her. Jordan will continue to offer some of her massage session from the Centre so we will still see her occasionally. Due to Jordan’s departure we will be having to close the gym temporarily on Saturdays. Please bear with us while we recruit to fill this vacancy in the team.
We are sad to announce that Jordan, one of our superb gym team, is leaving us. Jordan has been a valued member of staff for several years and we will miss her as she moves on to develop her various skills in music, sport and massage. She will still be coming into the Centre occasionally to provide her popular massage sessions so we will still see her around. We wish her all the best. Whilst we recruit to fill Jordan’s role at the gym we will be temporarily closing the gym on a Saturday. Please bear with us whilst we seek to do this.
The staff and Trustees of the Cambrian Community Centre were very sad to hear of the death of Rachel Dickson on August 6th. Throughout her many years in Richmond Rachel dedicated her life to public service and campaigned ceaselessly for the improvement of the lives of the more disadvantaged in our community. She worked tirelessly in support of many of our much loved local voluntary institutions and played a large part, along with Richmond Parish Lands Charity, in the creation of the Queens Road Estate and the Cambrian Community Centre.
We owe her a huge debt of gratitude and wish to extend our sincere condolences to her family. She will be greatly missed.

Announcing a new activity at The Cambrian Community Centre starting on 16th September. French Tutoring for children aged 5-11 years old with Eda Bilgen:
“After a long period of one to one tutoring experience I’m now ready and happy to announce my French Group Classes for children from September at Cambrian Community Centre in Richmond. Sessions will be held for KS1 and KS2 children for eleven weeks, weekly one session for each, at the beginning and due to requests more classes may also be added.
I can guarantee that students will love language learning and I can especially provide them with a good start into French learning with my “Friendly French Lessons.” I can also help them gain basic achievements in French language.
I also get children prepared for GCSE higher level exams both in French and Turkish languages. You’re also welcome to contact for advanced grammar and GSCE tuition for either of these languages privately.
I’ve an enhanced DBS check and looking forward to having my new students experience the fun way of language, learning together.”
Lessons start on September 16th- Mondays from 4-5pm (please note this is an amended time from the leaflet). Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
