Leatherhead Community Association


The Letherhead Institute (note the old spelling) was built in 1892 by local benefactor Abraham Dixon of Cherkley Court. Abraham gave the Institute to the people of Leatherhead to provide them with educational, social and recreational facilities. 

Based in the Letherhead Institute at 67 High Street, Leatherhead, the Leatherhead Community Association (LCA) is a registered charity that was established in 1977 with the objective of continuing to fulfil Abraham Dixon's vision of providing educational, social and recreational facilities for local people.

We have rooms available to hire, including Saturday morning/afternoon in our large AD Hall  - suitable for keep fit/yoga/dance classes or similar. We hire for meetings, educational or social group purposes e.g. craftwork, sewing, art groups etc. Our rates are very competitive. Please ring Sarah on 01372 360508 for more information.


LCA LIBRARY - our library is currently being revamped, with all the books being recategorised and computerised, making it quick and easy to locate any book in stock. We have lots of new book titles on the shelves and will be purchasing newly published books to keep up with current trends. Do come and support the library by borrowing books and DVDs, any week day morning between 09.30 - 12.00.
