Parkside Community Centre, established in 1996, is a popular community facility in Durham providing weekly community recreation projects including a youth club, an art group, tea dances, keep fit classes, a sewing and a writing club.

Biffa Award provided a grant to fully fund the installation of a new 3G surface to lay over an existing acrylic ball pitch. Those who use the pitch have been thrilled with the high-quality new facility, and it has greatly improved the benefit that the centre provides to the local community.
