Repton Park Community Facilities
Repton Connect Community Centre
Repton Connect is one step closer!
Repton Park is getting a brand new community space which will include a new building and a multi-use games area. The centre will also be able to host clubs, educational courses, cooking workshops and social events and lots more.
Planning permission was approved by Ashford Borough Council’s planning committee in February. You can view the planning submission at http://planning.ashford.gov.uk/
Repton Connect will be going out to tender in the spring and it is anticipated the community centre will be completed in 2017.
Ashford Borough Council is leading the project as part of its commitment to improving community and youth facilities across the borough working alongside the Repton Stakeholder Group.

A special ceremony and a community picnic took place on Saturday 24th September 2016 to mark the start of building work for Repton Connect.
Following the event, Repton residents were invited to a community picnic in Linear Park North. Families soaked up the sunshine and enjoyed their picnics on the grass, while staff from Ashford Waitrose and Ashford Vineyard handed out refreshments..
Thank you to everyone who came along.

How can I get involved?
There are lots of ways you can get involved; why not volunteer for the new trust when it’s set up or become a trustee?
Don’t forget to look out for the latest updates on the Repton Park Community Board, Waitrose’s own community board, Repton Manor Primary School and the council website.
If you have any questions or wish to sign up to receive updates on progress, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope that other members of the community will want to get involved as we move forward, making the best use of the skills, ideas and knowledge from within the community. Watch out for more opportunities to get involved.
