Coronavirus Update, 23/03/2021

Our Easter Programme for 2021 is now out – we are really looking forward to some face to face activities again, keeping within current government guidelines.  Have a look using our Holiday Activities tab! Hopefully come May half term there will be even more we can do!

Our Youth Club is still running via Zoom on Thursday evenings (plus a smaller group meeting via Zoom on Monday evenings) as is our Saturday Morning Multi Sports Club.   

We hope to be starting these clubs in person as soon as we can and it's safe to do so – we'll keep updating the website with any news that we have.

Meanwhile stay safe and do email us if you have any questions.
