Renaissance for community space

The newly-revamped seminar room at Taylor Made Community Space is reopening for a post-Easter resurgence.

After months of renovations which have included the installation of a new commercial kitchen, new carpeting and paintwork, the space is almost ready to reopen for community groups and family functions.  Centre manager Lisa Lindsay told The News they’re ready to register bookings after a hiatus of a couple of months.

The seminar room is the first part of an extensive project to significantly refurbish Taylor Made Community Space.  Prior to re-launching under that name in late 2022, the centre was known as the Cambridge Health and Community Centre, and the seminar room, which can accommodate and cater for up to 100 people, has become ‘first cab off the rank’ in terms of renovations.

The centre was originally built in 1962 as the Cambridge Maternity Hospital.  The long-term refurbishment project, which is reliant on funding as it goes, is intended to modernise the facilities and future-proof it for the years ahead.
