NEWS & EVENTS
Lots of interesting things go on at The Bircham Centre. On this page, you can read the latest Bircham Centre Trustees' Minutes and find out who won the 200 Club Draw this month.
2020 was the year for some radical changes to The Bircham Centre in terms of building and repairs. The following have been completed:
Pudding Pie Alley Wall is now completely repaired and safe, including repointing and rebuilding. The wall contains the Bircham Centre vegetable garden and is an original structure and integral part of Pudding Pie Alley.
Bircham Centre Reading Room. This was the major piece of work being undertaken in 2020 and now it is completed, has made a significant difference to the downstairs space of the Centre. Originally, the Bircham Centre was gifted to the town as a reading room, and with this legacy in mind, the Trustees have repurposed the old kitchem to a Reading Room, using the fact that the floor needed replacing as a perfect excuse to complete the transformation. The Reading Room is complete, and waiting for you to come and browse the vast range of books for sale, as soon as lockdown is lifted. This is the Centre as Samuel Bircham himself intended.
The Kitchen is now complete, and is a small galley space beyond the door, for making drinks and snacks, and fitted out with clean, new units and facilities.

This year, The Bircham Centre's AGM took place on 7th September 2020 after a very strange year. We welcomed three members of the public and all socially distanced upstairs in Room 8.
The business of the year was reviewed and we bid goodbye to the departing chair Brenda Green, and welcomed the incoming chair Les West.
