Welcome to Mackworth Estate Community Association
Mackworth Estate is situated to the North West of Derby City. Mackworth Estate Community Association (MECA) is the only organisation that represents all 3,200 households whether owner occupiers, tenants or lease holders living and working on Mackworth Estate.
MECA raises funds to put on various activities for all age groups, but in the main this as been for the young people during the school half terms and summer holidays. Mackworth Estate Community Association and Derby College have been working in partnership to put on many of the activities. The students are paid for their time and because they are mainly studying sport at the college it also gives the tutors the opportunity to assess the students on their capability of working with the young people.
Mackworth Estate does not have a fully inclusive community centre and so Mackworth Estate Community Association have agreed with Father John Phillips, the Parochial Church Council of St, Francis of Assisi and the Diocese of Derby to lease from them their former 402² mtr Family Centre for a peppercorn rent over twenty five years with a five year rolling programme therafter.
The building requires approximatley £600,000 spending on it to bring it back into a fully utilised community centre for all residents. The building already houses a large stage, a sprung dance floor and a number of rooms one will become MECA’s Hub (office) the others will be rented out to various agencies on a day to day basis to provide much needed advice and training for the residents.

Changing rooms will be built on for the Mackworth St, Francis Football Club and the other sporting organisations that will be using the centre as a base within the area for providing past time leisure activities for all age groups.
