Our Place Community Cafe

Tuesdays 10am to 12.30pm in the Community Centre

Our Place is a FREE weekly drop-in chat and support session for anyone of any age and in any circumstance. Staffed by volunteers from the local churches and community, and supported by a wide range of professional organisations (see below), we offer a safe environment to access support and advice or simply to chat over a cuppa.
We’ll signpost you to other groups or organisations too if appropriate.

We also offer FREE use of games equipment: table tennis, table football, air hockey, pool.

Bring your sewing or other craft along and join Sue in her creative corner to share skills and interests over a cuppa.
