A PLACE TO MEET FRIENDS AND STAY IN TOUCH WITH YOUR COMMUNITY
You are welcome to join us for any of our regular groups that meet at the Centre. If you have a group or a club that you’d like to run, we’d love to support you with that! Get in touch here and let's work out the details together.
Raise the Roof Fundraiser
The fundraising campaign to finance the covering of the deck outside the Front Room Cafe has officially got underway. The aim is to make the area weatherproof so that it can be used in all weather. It consists of a louvre roof and clear plastic sides that can be rolled up in good weather - think Riverside or Ocean by the Sumner clocktower.
It doubles the number of tables that front on to the estuary, and allows a clear view of the Llew Summers sculpture, Flight.
It also means that it can be booked for functions such as birthdays and anniversaries.
Details on how to donate are o on flyers at the community centre. or donate to this account:
