Start something new

Over the past few years, we have been working with the local community to support them in developing services, activities and initiatives that will benefit everyone.

Enabling people to use their skills to make a difference for themselves and those around them. If you fancy getting involved in developing a new activity based around any interests or ideas you have get in touch! Crafts, games, writing, radio controlled cars?!  Some of the locals have just organised the shop selling local creations!

If you want to develop your interests into an activity with others, we can help you clarify and develop it, give the space to experiment, help gain feedback from social media and even create a logo and help you market it! Which is exactly what happened with our new Toddler Time group! Just drop us an email or pop in.
