We will be closed from Monday the 22nd December and will open again on Monday the 5th January.
We would like to wish all our visitors a wonderful christmas and new year.
Our lovely volunteers will be opening the club through the summer (except Thursdays during July) from 12.30 to 3.00pm. So if you are at a loose end during the holidays, please pop along and say hello (the kettle will always be on). £1.00 donation (only charged in summer to help keep us running)!
Today we held our annual christmas party at the Club. It was a fantastic success and attended by 26 children and more parents! A great time was had by all and we'd like to say a big thank you to all those who attended today and have supported us throughout this year, we couldn't operate without your support, and loyalty.
We are pleased to announce that the Big Red Bus Club, funded by the Big Lottery, is starting this term, the Life Line project. We aim to support our volunteers and build capacity in our organisation.
As volunteers you will be supported to share ideas, receive training and build a plan and our organisation for our long term future.
