The Gill Nethercott Centre is a new modern community centre opened on 28th April 2007 right in the heart of the small Hampshire Town of Whitchurch. The Centre was the dream of the late local resident and councillor Gill Nethercott who saw the vision of providing a venue that could be used by all activities in the Town.
The architect has designed this 21st century building to sit in the natural landscape and to complement the shape of the nearby Whitchurch Silk Mill - built in the 19th century and still working, producing high quality silks. Raised on modern-day staddle-stones that allow free movement of the wild-life attracted by the stream, the Gill Nethercott Centre consists of a large and a small pod linked by a section that spans the water.
It houses a large hall, a smaller side hall, a meeting room, a fully equipped kitchen, and an outside decking area. The modern Whitchurch Library is housed upstairs and is accessible by lift. Car and cycle parking is immediately adjacent.
The Centre is administered by the Whitchurch Association.
