Got An Idea?
We are always looking to host new community groups. If you have an idea you'd like to try out for a club or regular group get in touch with Kaye here. We can provide the venue as well as support with promotion and admin related to your group. If you have a community not for profit group that is open to members of the public and looking for a home, we may be able to help with that, too.
