The staff at the Southwick community centre are fantastic, especially Bill, Stewart, Jane and Connie! Food is a great price and always tasted lovely. There’s always different events going on and they really do try provide entertainment and other interesting things for local members of the community to partake in!

A lovely community centre with plenty of great staff and events. I came to eat in their cafe and was quite empty on the Friday morning. I ordered the full English which came with tea for £5.50. this is super value for money compared to the high street cafes around the corners. There is plenty of light and gardens if you want to eat outside.

I’ve been there twice now for conferences. The facilities are well kept, the food was good and the theatre area is well laid out and holds around a hundred people. There is a large grass area and some seating outside. There are several other buildings but I didn’t go into them.
