(13th June 2021) if you reserved local tickets, you should now have been emailed by the Wilderness team with a link to pay for your tickets through Ticketmaster and your individual code. There have been a few teething problems with the system, but we are assured it is working now. If you have not received this email, please email them at email@example.com
If you still have last year’s tickets, you need to exchange them urgently for tickets for this year. To do this, bring them to the Community Centre on a Saturday afternoon and we will send them off for exchange.
You can now book gym appointments (if you are a paid up member) and you use the café and the library when it is open. The under-fives sessions, Maker’s Club, Basketball Club and Youth Club have resumed. The café is now open for table service, some indoor sports have resumed (such as racket sports , walking football and some socially distanced classes). The Friday coffee club has resumed as well, but you will have to sit in groups of six unless you are outdoors.
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!
