It’s all hands on deck there as they prepare for the opening of the fantastic new community centre and cafe on Monday 25 May.

This is such a successful and inspiring story of determined community action. The group raised half a million pounds in grants to build large new playing fields, a community cafe and meeting rooms They’l be running outreach medical and therapeutic services as well as providing a much needed community hub. Just brilliant.

Tools and gloves will be provided but do bring your own if you want to. Tea and biscuits also provided.
