Community Sewing & Knitting
Following recent courses, a group of local women have decided to build on the learning, fun and friendship that they'd enjoyed, by running their own weekly classes.
They're open to all and take place on Wednesdays, between 10am-12pm.
All we ask is that you pay £3 per session to cover the cost of hiring the room and help towards the time and materials provided by our teachers.
It's a very informal, relaxed group and we guarantee that you'll be made to feel very welcome. So, what are you waiting for?
Daily, Mon-Fri 0900-1730, we now have our very own micro-library, with books generously loaned to us by the lovely people at Vivacity Libraries, and others donated by residents, near and far.
It's free to use - you don't need a library card - and you can choose to drop in here and enjoy a quiet read, or you can borrow a book or two to take home (all we ask is that you bring them back later).
We hold storytelling sessions for children, too. Look out for details of when these are taking place. We love books!
Barnardos Stay & Play
Every Tuesday morning, between 0945-1115, The Centre hosts FREE drop-in sessions. These provide a safe and stimulating learning environment in which parents/carers can play with their children and have fun learning together. These sessions focus on developing the child's language and literacy, in preparation for school. For further information, contact Claire Webb
The Centre also accommodates the very successful Beeches Pre-school, which has its own management committee. The Pre-school has an excellent Ofsted inspection report. Most Pre-schools take children from the age of 2 years and 6 months until they start primary school. Please speak with Rachel Casbon, Pre-school Manager, for further details.
