Organisations Using Community Centre


There are a number of  societies, clubs and organisations which use the community centre on a regular basis.   If you are interested in joining any organisation it is suggested that you approach an existing member  at the community centre itself;  alternatively speak to the Lettings Secretary.  The Main Hall is currently available every Monday evening should you be considering running a society or club yourself.
