Have you got a passion for changing your local community for the better? Do you love to see people come together, make new friends, try a new challenge and have their lives enriched as a result? We hope so, as this is just the kind of person we are looking for!

The strap-line of Repton Community Trust is ‘Putting the heart in Repton’ and we are keen to see this happen and that’s why we all got involved in this project. We are not interested in just running a centre – we’re hungry for more than that. We want to see lives changed as a result of this centre being in existence. We dream of it becoming a place where people connect with each other and where people do life together. We want it to become the heartbeat of the Repton area – hence the strap-line.
