1970's - Youth and Community Centre
Onchan Youth and Community Centre
1979 is the year chosen by the Government of the Isle of Man to celebrate 1,000 years of believed unbroken self-government. Each local authority or district had been asked to assist in the celebrations by brining to light some part of its own history and thus our Island Heritage can be enjoyed by visitor and local alike.
In Onchan the Parish and Village Commissioners have joined together to produce a programme of events that should not only provide some enjoyment to their participants and spectators, but should ultimately provide a lasting benefit to
the future generations of Onchan Residents. Each event promoted is intended to be fund raising, and the proceeds are to go towards the erection of a Youth and Community Centre on the Lily Pond site in the School Road Recreation Field.
Other events are being promoted by clubs, societies and even individuals in an effort to achieve this long sought after building. A 'Buy a Brick' scheme has been launched and purchasers of bricks stand a chance of winning prizes in Tombola to be held in November.
