About Us


Lymm Youth & Community Association Limited  (referred to on this site as LYCA) is a local registered charity set up to operate and safeguard the Lymm Youth & Community Centre (LYCC) for the people of Lymm.

The centre was built in the 1960s as purpose-built youth club in a scenic setting by the Bridgewater Canal in Lymm village centre. With the support of Lymm Parish Council and the wider community, we have secured a Community Asset Transfer from Warrington Borough Council. The building is now leased to LYCA, and we are acting on behalf of the community as a whole. There is a management meeting at least once every two months, and all meetings are open to the public.

We are accessible and supportive and we organise a wide range of events to help build a stronger community. 

The centre has been used by many local community organisations, including:

  • 4Lymm

  • Lymm WI

  • Marie Curie

  • Macmillan

  • Lymm Rotary Club

  • Lymm Festival

  • Lymm Local History Society

  • Lymm Scouts and Guides

  • Lymm Roundtable

  • Lymm May Queen

  • Lymm Festivities Group
