Our Story

Herbert E Weatherley of engineering firm Weatherley Oilgear, later Weatherley Cincinatti was the benefactor behind the Weatherley Centre. The company was the town's biggest employer in the post-war years with a vast factory site close to the railways of Dells Lane.

In the early 1970's Mr Weatherley established the Weatherley Trust with a cash gift to provide facilities for the community. Our location became available for development. In October 1979 the centre was officially opened by Herbert's son Tom.

Today the centre is run by a dedicated team who are committed to providing friendly, top-quality service. The centre is still overseen by the Weatherley Trustees who manage the trust's fund in the best interests of the centre and the wider community. The aim to provide a community facility for the ever-growing town remains.
