What we do
We organise and host recreational events and activities offering local communities a chance to come together.

We help local community groups and projects who require our support, along with being involved in setting up new community groups or projects where there is a need for them.

We are always looking for people who would like to be involved in our activities, especially those who are willing to spare a few hours of their time to volunteer.

We are keen to bring people together and help us make our local communities more vibrant.

Lastly, we offer help to community groups, charities or individuals who need support for a specific cause.
