What’s Happening

Sadly, we are still not able to reopen. However, we are not standing still!

We have been revamping the kitchen with the help of some donations in kind and the dedicated work of volunteers. We are developing plans to improve all of our garden areas over the next 12-15 months, to create safe and inclusive spaces for relaxation with others. We continue to fundraise and we have had some recent application successes, please see our Grants page. And in the meantime the Library borrow a book trolley can still be found outside No 9 High Street during fine weather.
