We try to deliver an inclusive programme of activities that has at least one targeted session that is appropriate for you. Whether it's for older people, families, pre-schoolers, disabled people or women only to name a few. We are continually trying to engage with funding opportunities to enrich our offer to you and have something available for everyone.
In some cases, depending on the funding, they may be free. But in most cases, they range from £1 - £4.50 averaging at £3 a session.
We are always looking for opportunities of new partnership working. Whether that means joining forces on an existing project to enrich it or working together to create something new that may be missing. Please contact our Active Communities Officer to discuss your ideas.
