Ore centre is situated on the east side of Hastings, on the A259 Folkestone Road. The building is a 150 year old former school which has been a community centre for approximately 40 years.
Our ethos is to ‘serve the local community’ by bringing together the local residents for educational, social and pleasurable activities.
The centre is run by the Ore Community Association which is a charity and a not for profit organisation run by the local people and the users of the centre.
We have a large hall 43 feet long & 25 feet wide with large stage area, it can seat about 100 – 140 standing, perfect for parties etc.
We have 3 large studios upstairs – 2 of which can be rented out for various activities.
There is a café open from Monday to Friday from 9-2.30pm which boasts fresh food daily – nutritious soups – delicious cakes and lovely lunches – all at reasonable prices. This now has a lovely outside seating area.
We have a large car park at the front of the building and a smaller one to the rear of the property.
A lovely community garden has recently been established in the front of the property which has a seating area for the enjoyment of local residents.
There is access for the disabled and a disabled toilet.
