At the heart of Hanover

Hanover Centre: Building Starts

A group of local people came together in the 1970’s to try to set up a community centre for Hanover. The council offered a lease on the disused school building on Southover Street. In 1976 many local tradespeople started working for free on the project , sourcing materials wherever they could.

QueenSpark books published a community newsletter at the time, and the beginning of the centre was recorded in its pages.
