KINVER Sports and Community Association wants residents to have their say over the future of their existing premises.

They have launched a questionnaire for Kinver people to comment on as they plan for the next generation.

The 50-year-old premises need refurbishing and organisers want to hear the views of residents as they attempt to make sure the site remains a hub for the local community.

At present, the premises already play host to both book and antique fairs over weekends.

It also provides a base for keep fit classes, indoor bowls in addition to acting as a social centre which can be hired out for private parties.

Chairman Rachel Davis said: "We have a typical 1950s building that is now in much need of modernisation. It forms an important part of the village and we have to make sure it remains fit for purpose. But we need the support of local people so we can press forward with plans.

"That's why we're urging everyone to respond to our questionnaire by the end of April.

"We need the support of the community before we can apply for lottery funding.

"Originally the premises were built for sport. They then realised they required changing facilities and the community side grew from that.

"There is now the possibility of developing part of the building into a multi-purpose hall which could cater for netball, basketball and tennis.

"It also provides a home for the New Kinver Players who regularly produce three shows a year."
