About Pippins

A warm and welcoming community hub in the heart of Axminster.


Welcome to the Pippins Community Centre! Founded in its present form in October 2016, our lovely historic building is a bustling hub for the local community and home to a wide array of community groups and support services.

We have several comfortable and well-equipped rooms available to hire for birthday parties, events, meetings and groups, including our light and airy cafe-style community room - visit the Room Hire section to browse rooms and facilities or contact us with a booking enquiry.

Looking for a new project? Have a look through our current Volunteering opportunities.

Pippins available for Birthday Parties and events from £45 - email Liz: bookings@pippinscommunitycentre.co.uk

Pippins Heating Update - 7 Feb 24

Pippins Heating Update - 7 Feb 24

 

The two expensive parts have been fitted to our existing boiler

and the servicing carried out. Sadly a fan has to be replaced so we are awaiting a quote and a date. We are hoping that the existing boiler

has about 5 years of life left in it.

 

We have raised a whopping £1390 so far towards our

Pippins Emergency Boiler Appeal!

 

A MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has given.

 

In slow time we are forming a group of people who would like to research Renewable Energy and apply for funding potentially for a heat pump / solar panels / infrared panels. For more info please chat with Rev Kay

 

If you would like to donate a ‘tenner to help us get toasty’
