Temporary Closure

Temporary Closure


Due to the UK Government’s decision to implement a period of lockdown, the centre will be closed from 5th November until 2nd December.

Please stay in touch through our website and facebook page, or email the office.  The office is closed, but emails will be monitored by volunteers.

The Fieldgate Centre will remain on standby as an emergency respite centre for major incidents and we will continue to make improvements in readiness for opening our doors again in December.

We look forward to welcoming you back.

Power to Change Awards COVID 19 Support Grant to Kingsclere Community Association.

Power to Change awards COVID 19 Support Grant to Kingsclere Community Association.

Power to Change has awarded Kingsclere Community Association a grant that will go towards supporting keeping the Fieldgate Centre running over the next six months.  Power to Change is an independent charitable trust that supports and develops community businesses like ours.

It has been a difficult time for many businesses and charities over the last few months and Kingsclere Community Association had to close the Fieldgate Centre temporarily.  Now our task is to welcome back as many of our users as is possible, within the current guidelines, and the grant will help to support us while we build up our usage again to the levels we had before lockdown.

During the last year one of our volunteers has been part of the Community Business Trade Up Programme, run by the School of Social Entrepreneurs.  As a result of this commitment not only were we able to qualify to be considered for the grant and enter into the competitive process, we also gained crucial knowledge that placed us in a better position to weather the initial impact of the Coronavirus crisis.

Kingsclere Community Association is appealing for companies and individuals to pledge a total of £9,250 by 28th August to enable the next phase of improvement works.  This phase is to install new flooring, build a new gantry access and to decorate our village’s valued community facility.

Pledges start as low as £100 and will be collected in January 2021.  Your pledge will be doubled by The Big Give match funding campaign (below).

Community support for people who have to stay at home

Community support for people who have to stay at home

During the Coronavirus outbreak, many people have been told to self-isolate at home as they have medical conditions that could put them at risk or are over 70. Some of these people have relatives or friends who are able to help out by dropping off shopping or prescriptions safely without coming into contact with them.

But for those who don’t have anyone to support them, Basingstoke Voluntary Action (BVA) are working with Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and a number of community organisations to set up the Basingstoke and Deane Community Hub to co-ordinate the volunteers wanting to help. Since the community hub was launched, 53 local neighbourhood groups have registered and volunteers are being put in touch with groups, with more volunteers on standby to help if needed.

Hampshire County Council is acting as the main co-ordination point for all district community hubs in the county with a hotline. The Coronavirus Hampshire Helpline – Hantshelp4vulnerable – can be contacted on 0333 370 4000. The helpline is available seven days a week, from 9am to 5pm.

Vulnerable residents who need help, and do not have support from family or friends, should call the helpline to register for support. The county council will resolve complex cases and will pass on most other enquiries to the Basingstoke and Deane Community Hub to arrange support, such as deliveries of food.

Any residents who still want to volunteer or local groups who haven’t already registered should visit or call 01256 423852. BVA has published an interactive map on its webpage showing the location and contact details for all the local groups.

Those people identified at risk of severe illness as a result of underlying medical conditions, that have been written to directly by the NHS, should register for help via as per the instructions in their letter. They have been told that they should not leave home for at least 12 weeks.
