Westgate Community Trust (Canterbury) Ltd is a company limited by guarantee with charitable status. The Trust is inclusive, non-political and does not discriminate.

Westgate Hall is a neutral space

As trustees/directors of Westgate Hall, our engagement in Canterbury is shaped by our Articles of Association and the terms of our 99-year lease to the Hall from Canterbury City Council.

We are to preserve, maintain and manage Westgate Hall as a financially self-sustaining community and leisure centre for the benefit of the people of Canterbury and its districts.

We are a diverse group of local people

We work to maintain and enhance the quality of community life by working together with residents, users of the Hall, the local authorities, public, private and voluntary sector organisations to provide facilities supporting education, social welfare, recreation and leisure activities.

Let’s build a stronger community together
