A VILLAGE community centre could be transformed in to a performing arts venue in a bid to survive.
Cambourne Parish Council is looking at investing up to £30,000 in the Hub community centre to help secure its future in the village.
A report prepared by parish councillor Howard Fall suggests that the Hub could lose "considerable" revenue when the village's sports centre opens next year.
The report states: "The loss of revenue for the Hub could be considerable as it is believed that a fair number of current bookings for exercise and sports related activities, especially in the evenings will transfer to the new facility (the sports centre) in early 2009."

With this is mind the council is hoping to attract non-sporting activities to the Hub.
To expand the use of the Hub the council is intending to submit a grant application to South Cambridgeshire District Council to pay for staging, lighting, sound equipment and additional storage for the building.
