CLOSURE OF AUGB BRADFORD BRANCH PREMISES!

It is with a heavy heart that Bradford AUGB Branch announces the closure of its premises with immediate effect until further notice. AUGB Bradford has made this decision following recent announcements and directives by the British Government and the AUGB Board, brought about by the rapidly changing situation regarding the spread of COVID-19, caused by the coronavirus.

This is an extremely worrying time for us all and we ask everyone to stay safe and healthy, take care of yourself and your loved ones and help those in need, especially our elderly community members.

Further updates will be provided as the situation develops.  We thank our members for their continued support and understanding and look forward to being able to welcome you back to our community centre, hopefully in the not too distant future.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us bradford@augb.co.uk

About The Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB)

The Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain (AUGB) is the largest representative body for Ukrainians and those of Ukrainian descent. It exists to develop, promote and support the interests of the Ukrainian community in the UK.

AUGB operates a network of 28 local branches, with their own social/cultural centre, across the UK. There are also 19 smaller branches and sub-branches which do not have their own centre, but organise periodic events for Ukrainians in their area. At local level, we support Ukrainian Community Schools, Day Centres and a range of cultural and social activities.

AUGB works closely with other community organisations, including the Association of Ukrainian Women (AUW), youth organisations and others. We have a working relationship with the Embassy of Ukraine in the United Kingdom.

The Association welcomes new members, both individuals and corporate bodies, who subscribe to the purposes of the Association and who want to maintain and develop the life and interests of the Ukrainian community in Great Britain. The Association’s local branches provide lots of opportunities for people to become involved and make a difference: helping to run the community center, organising social and cultural events, raising awareness of Ukrainian issues externally, and helping maintain pride in our heritage and traditions. We encourage you to become a member – get involved – make a difference!

 Ukrainian Club

A large Ukrainian Community has existed in Bradford since the end of the Second World War, when hundreds and thousands of displaced Ukrainians came to the city to work in the thriving mill industries. They quickly organised themselves and established organisations allowing them to purchase churches and community centres.

The first community centre was in Claremont, Great Horton.  However, the community soon outgrew these premises and a new centre was purchased on Legrams Lane. The Ukrainian community continues its cultural activities, including dancing, singing and hosts a Ukrainian Saturday school.

The venue boasts two fully equipped bar areas with three fantastic function rooms, which can accommodate small and large functions up to 400 people. It also includes a modern, well equipped kitchen, classrooms and a sports court, all of which are available to hire. There is a large landscape garden to the rear. The venue has ample free parking.
