Now in our sixth year, the original Our Place drop in the large community room at the front of West Wight Sports and Community Centre is still going strong. We’d love to meet more of our community so drop by for a cuppa and a chat, play a game of pool, meet your community and if you need help and advice for any reason, we have people on hand who can help or if they can’t, can connect you with someone who can.
