A not-for-profit ‘Private Company limited by guarantee’ has been set up by the Delphi Centre user group to take over the running of the Delphi Centre from April 2017.

It is planned the group will take over when Sudbury Town Council’s lease for the building - owned by Delphi Diesel Systems - ends on April 1, 2017.

Ray Ward, chairman of the user group, said: “This is an exciting time for the centre with an opportunity to widen its appeal and to continue to provide much needed facilities in Sudbury.”

Three directors have already been appointed to oversee the transitional arrangements to “ensure the smooth transfer and continued operation of the centre”.

The centre which has been providing sporting, leisure and entertainment facilities since 1965, has an enclosed sports field and mature bowls green with changing facilities.

There is also a dance floor and several rooms are available for meetings, parties and dances.

In his letter Mr Ward said the group now needed the support of the local community.

“We are now seeking help and support of members of the community, individuals and businesses, to assist in our goal of continuing to provide these facilities to the benefit of the community for the foreseeable future.

“We are especially keen to hear from individuals with good business skills, including book keeping and PAYE experience, marketing and facility management to assist in our objectives.

“We are a totally voluntary group who are determined to ensure that the Delphi centre thrives and remains viable, if you have similar views we would like to hear from you.”
