Status update 10th Jan 2022

The Centre and Café are open Mondays to Thursdays 10-2pm and we look forward to welcoming you back again.

We are hoping to bring news of the return of our youth programme as soon as we receive funding to enable this to happen. We have a new programme starting that supports older people looking for work and needing help with building skills and confidence so if that sounds like your or someone you know do get in touch.

The Community Car Service is operating as normal. Please call 07597 713257 for all booking enquiries. We are looking for more volunteer drivers as demand is growing for this vital service. It’s a great way to help people and doesn’t require a huge time commitment. Call and ask for Linda for a chat and more information.

The Walking for Health programme meets at the Civic Centre car park at 10am on Wednesdays. They have a Facebook page Whitchurch Walking for Health with up-to-date information and photos from previous walks.
