Welcome to Belah Community Centre

About Us

Belah Community Centre is approximately 43 years old. However the building was built in March 1951 and was originally used as a Baptist Church, the Baptist pool itself still exists under the floor of the main hall. The building was purchased by the local City Council in 1964 for £5,000 and was opened as a Community Centre.

During 2008 Belah has undergone a massive re-development. The newly refurbished building provides a modern, clean and friendly up to date community facility all on one level.

All rooms are equipped with loop facilities, pull down projection screens and on request a mobile projection system. The building has sun pipe technology, energy efficient lighting and up-to-date insulation.

The Centre benefits from having a large secure car park with easy access for the disabled.

The WI celebrated its centenary in 2015 and currently has 212,000 members in over 6,300 WIs.

Serving up first class support – in and out of group

Our generous eating plan makes slimming easier than you ever thought possible! Instead of telling you what you can and can’t eat, Food Optimising puts you in control. You don’t need to worry about weighing all your food, counting points or monitoring every mouthful.

Slimming World’s highly effective approach to weight loss is empowering and enabling. Our support – online and in group – is based on a deep understanding of how you feel and a passionate desire to help you achieve your personal weight loss goals – and maintain them for life!

Success isn’t achieved by setting impossible standards, or through humiliation, it’s achieved through caring, compassion and respect. You decide what size you want to be and we’ll help you get there. At Slimming World we work together to help you look and feel great – body, mind and soul.
