The centre is now open to the public again. You can now book gym appointments (if you are a paid up member) and you can get food and drink to take away from the café and use the library when it is open. After the Easter school holidays, the under-fives sessions, Maker’s Club, Basketball Club and some sports for children will resume. From 17th May the café will be open for table service, some indoor sports can resume (such as racket sports in groups of 6 and some socially distanced classes). The Friday coffee club will resume as well on 21st May, but you will have to sit in groups of six.
Opening hours are as follows:
We rely on fundraising, grants and donations for about 20% of the running costs of the Community Centre. Regular donations are especially valuable, so we have set up a “Friends of Charlbury Community Centre” scheme. Regular donors have their names appear on the display screen in the lobby, so it is good for those who missed out on the “Buy a Brick” scheme, or for people who are generous enough to want to help on a regular basis. For more details or to join please download this form.
If you make purchases from Amazon (bearing in mind that buying local is better of course!), we’d be really grateful if you could do it through Amazon Smile. If you do so the Thomas Gifford Trust will receive 0.5% of the purchase value. You will need to select Thomas Gifford Trust when you choose the above link or click on this Amazon Smile logo. So far we have raised £151.42 through this scheme. Thank you!
This year the Charlbury Community Centre has employed a team of young people, who have undertaken lots of different projects around the town, from building raised beds in people's gardens, to facilitating outdoor and indoor virtual coffee club get-togethers for seniors, and helping with activities for children. This would not have been possible without the financial support of WODC (Community Activities Grant), PF Charitable Trust and local donors. Thank you all very much!
Charlbury Town Council has generousy awarded the Thomas Gifford Trust a grant of £2,500 plus an additional £2,000 to cover some tree surgery work, which a recent survey has revealed needs doing on the Playing Close. As always this money will be used mainly for the maintenance of the Playing Close and also for Community Support and is very gratefully received in these difficult times.
