Sherburn in Elmet Community Trust was formed with the following objectives.
- To enable Sherburn Library to become a Community managed service. This has been achieved. Sherburn & Villages Community Library has been community run and managed by local volunteers since April 2017 and our task now is to maintain and develop this facility into the future.
- To provide a Community Hub to enable access to local services. This is work in progress.
- To develop the Old Girls’ School into a community facility for the benefit of local people. We are on the point of making this happen. The newly refurbished school will be reborn as the Community Centre and Tearoom on September 1st 2018.
