Formed in 1983, the Midway Social Club runs the bar facilities at the Shire Way Community Centre.
The club provides a pleasant Lounge Bar for members to drink socially with family and friends. Now with adult-only area. Children are welcome, but must be kept under parental control.
There is a spacious patio for members to enjoy their drinks outside, with a large enclosed play area for the children.
A number of sporting groups have been formed to give members the opportunity to represent the club and compete locally. These include skittles, darts, cribbage, pool and football.
Midway Social Club is registered under the Industrial and Provident Societies Act. Registration number 24477R.
Our Centre is built all on one level, with a ramp for wheelchair access, wide or double doors throughout and two disabled toilets, as well as an induction loop in both halls.
In 1980 Westerleigh Parish Council supported by Dodington Parish Council called a public meeting to discuss ways of providing a much-needed community building in South Yate.
Less than three years later, the Shire Way Community Association proudly opened the Shire Way Community Centre. It was soon evident that the building was too small.
After four years, an extension was added on the South side to enlarge the social facilities, whilst the community facilities were enhanced with changing rooms for stage and sporting events.
A further expansion of the building took place in 1993, when a kitchen extension was added, enabling the Association to provide a full catering service for private functions.
Plans exist to provide sports pitches on over 13 acres of adjoining land, and sources of funding this development are currently being investigated.
