Shrewsbury House is a community centre run for the benefit of the local people of Shooters Hill and Plumstead Common. It is a place where people of all ages can come together safely to enjoy fun, recreation and education, the heart and focus of our community.
The House is a Grade II listed building owned by Royal Borough of Greenwich. Shrewsbury House Community Association is a charity run by a board of trustees who are elected annually from the members who use it. It is managed a by a small group of paid staff.
In 2023 we will celebrate fifty five years as a community centre, and the centenary year of the building.
Shrewsbury House has rooms of varying sizes on the ground and first floor of the building that can be booked either by affiliated user groups for a regular class or activity or privately. Affiliated groups are charged for room booking at a lower rate than private hirers.
