What we can offer Our Centre in Central Street is gradually opening up following lockdown and we are able to offer several services to locals from daily lunch club to kids after school clubs. Anyone entering the building must wear a mask at all times unless eating or drinking. We have sanitising stations, screens, a one-way system and regular cleaning in place. As always our priority is supporting those who are most vulnerable in our community, including frail and isolated pensioners, residents experiencing financial difficulties and households affected by sickness. Opening up - what's our plan? Our expanded programme of after school kids clubs is now underway and proving popular. We are lucky to have several outdoor green spaces that can be used, and will gradually expand our programme of activities for all ages throughout May. Keep an eye on our website and social media feeds for further details. Over 55s See our latest over 55s mailing letter here.
