The new building makes such a difference. It's light and airy, the colours throughout bring a freshness and warmth. It is no longer looking down at heel and is fit for purpose (many in fact).
The Community has our new building. We are attracting a lot more lettings from organisations and individuals. Very encouraging.
Our Partnership activities are going well. The Nearly New Shop, now 'New2You' is attracting new customers. It is sited near the front door and much more accessible.. We welcome donations of good quality clothes, small household items, Nursery items and books/toys.
Please note furniture and large items cannot be accepted due to lack of storage. Donations can be received Tuesdays 1.30pm to 3.30pm and on a Wednesday and Thursday from 10am to 12 noon. Alternatively please ring Jane Parsons on 01761 412304.
Community Lunch is on Thursdays at 12 noon and the Toddler Group meets on Wednesday mornings from 10 - 11.30am.
The Toddler Group numbers have picked up again with a group of younng families, babies and toddlers joining us.
Yes, we have had more people through the door since the re-opening. We have a good suite of premises which will fit most requirements.
