This very active and busy Community Centre is staffed, in the main, by a fantastic team of volunteers, which enables the Centre to open most days between 9am - 10pm.

Our volunteer Stewards work from the reception area and are the first point of contact for visitors, telephone calls and general enquiries. We are looking for friendly people with plenty of common sense to join our team, and will promise you a warm welcome.  Please ring Tina Lambert on 02392 467567 and she will be happy to discuss the role with you.
