Princes Risborough Secondary School has a relatively new team of Governors who are a friendly bunch with some fantastic skills. We provide a vitally important role as “critical friend”, supporting and challenging the school to provide the best for all the children in its care. To do the best we can we need more like minded people who have the time and energy to help improve the life chances of our local children.

News from the Princes Centre

Fantastic face lift for The Princes Centre

Princes Risborough’s multi-award winning day care provider, The Princes Centre, will soon receive a major refurbishment to improve and extend its facilities that are enjoyed by over 150 + clients every week.

The Princes Centre welcomes 36 adults, both young and old, every day offering them a wide range of services and experiences for them to enjoy including education courses, cookery, pottery and flower arranging lessons, exercise classes, swimming, gym and bowling.

Thanks to the generous donations from local companies and individuals as well as grants (local organisations), the existing building will be renovated, extending the main downstairs area, creating a larger kitchen, new toilets and spacious additional work areas. The work is due to start in May and the centre is planned to reopen in early Autumn.

Whilst parts of the building will be closed during the refurbishment works The Princes Centre will continue to operate a full service for its clients by creating temporary work areas within the building as well as delivering additional services out in the community.

Kim Challinor, Manager of The Princes Centre commented on the refurbishment “We are absolutely thrilled that the long overdue refurbishment is going to happen and I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone who has helped bring it life. The Princes Centre will be transformed into a modern facility where our clients will be able to enjoy fantastic services and experiences. It’s going to be a tremendous asset in our community and we can’t wait to welcome everyone through the doors later this year”

John, a client who has been visiting The Princes Centre for the past 7 years said “I always look forward to my visits to the Princes Centre, the staff are brilliant and there is always something interesting to do. It’s great news that we are going to have a fantastic new space to enjoy”

If you would like to volunteer your help for any morning or afternoon for a few hours for a limited number of weeks, or if you would like to book a hall, please ring Kim, our manager, on 01844 345105.

Help needed!

Lighthouse is a local initiative that provides a week-long summer club full of Christian teaching for local children at the beginning of the summer holidays. The Princes Risborough event is run under the auspices of Churches Together in Risborough (CTR) and has been running for 17 years. It regularly hosts over 500 children and nearly as many teenage leaders, many of whom have no connection with the local churches. The event gets much really great, positive, feedback via the children’s parents.

The event only runs through the generosity of local schools, halls & churches in providing funding & loaning equipment and, more importantly, the hundreds of volunteers from young teenagers to those who are much more mature in years. Without their selfless contributions of time the event could not happen.

This year we are facing a major challenge as the Site Manager of recent years will not be available this year. Princes Risborough Lighthouse recognises that the role has grown year on year and  we are trying to find a team of volunteers  to make up four teams to be involved in physical activity for 2 or 3 days around the time of the event (July 25th to August 4th).  If you have any ideas, please can you make initial contact via email to lighthouse-pr@dawshome.plus.com for more information.
