Community Centre update – October 2020

We are now beginning to open up some of our spaces to run small invite-only community activities such as conversation bubbles and exercise classes. 

Our community’s wellbeing is our top priority and we will be introducing additional activities only if we’re confident that we can keep our community centre members and staff safe and happy. In the meantime, our Community Centre REMAINS CLOSED.

We are committed to keeping in touch and offering ways to socialise and stay active. We’ve launched a new online platform for community activities on Facebook.

The Community Centre

The Community Centre has something for everyone. We hold a range of free social, fitness, health and learning activites or you can come in for a cup of tea and a chat. 

Unfortunately the centre is currently closed and we’ve had to temporarily stop running all face-to-face activities. Our community’s wellbeing is our top priority and we will be introducing additional activities only if we’re confident that we can keep our community centre members and staff safe and happy.

Until it is safe to open our doors again and welcome you back, please go to our online community group on Facebook, ‘Activities Against Isolation‘.

The Befriending Service

If you are experiencing loneliness, or want to make a new friend without leaving home – our befriending project might be for you. The project brings together people with shared interests for a regular conversation over the phone.
