Our large building in Central Street offers activities and services to locals including daily lunch club, classes for adults and kids after school clubs. 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, families experiencing financial difficulties and households affected by sickness.

Our expanded programme of after school kids clubs is now underway and proving popular, with arts/crafts, table tennis, gardening and dance. We are lucky to have several outdoor green spaces that can be used, and the kids can experience gardening and growing food in an urban environment, getting their hands dirty and learning about nature. 

We are also launching our adults' activities again which include sewing, line-dancing, art, table tennis, walking group and much more. Keep your eyes on the website and our social media channels for confirmed times.
