About Us

Our objective is to provide a hub for our community being a resource, information centre and focal point within the community: to promote learning, social interaction and the sharing of knowledge. To foster and encourage all forms of arts and crafts, hobbies and leisure time activities.  To provide: Education programmes including fitness, first aid, learner licence and special interests groups, to have spaces for community groups and individuals to hire, to be a place for small/medium groups to call home and run their activities.

We create opportunities for genuine community partnerships, and nurturing community development and place-based initiatives while working alongside other organisations. It is a wonderful collaborative community project which will help neighbourhoods to become more self-sufficient.
