The next in the series of monthly quizzes will be held on Wednesday, 24th April at 7.15pm for a 7.45pm start (note slightly earlier start time). Tickets, priced £5 are available from the reception desk at the Community Centre, or you can call us on 01608 811878 to reserve your place (but please pay at time of booking). We can only accommodate 8 tables of up to 6 people so it is cosy in there! You do not have to have a whole team – we will match you up with others where there are singles, pairs etc. If you do not have a full table, be aware that we may need to put some people with you. Drinks (alcoholic and soft, cold and hot) and snacks will be served from the café. This quiz will be hosted by Alison Pritchard.
Dates of next few quizzes:
A free concert of French cafe style music featuring a singer, accordion, violin, guitar and bass. The cafe will be open and serving all it’s usual goodies plus ham or cheese baguettes (priced at £3). Come along for a relaxing light Sunday lunch, or just to hear the music.
Come along for an afternoon of Scrabble in the TG Room from 2.30-5pm. We will have lots of games going on at once and people scoring highest or lowest will move tables after each game so we get different people to play with. Cost will be £2 per person to help with room hire, refreshments are available from the café.
A monthly bereavement support group held in our cafe area, run by St Mary’s Church, on the last Tuesday of each month from 2pm-3pm. Everyone experiences grief differently; there is no ‘right’ way to grieve. No matter how long ago you have lost a loved one, this is an opportunity to meet over a cup of tea with others in a friendly and supportive environment, to share experiences and advice. For more information contact Jan Fielden: 07986 606548, email@example.com or just turn up.
Age UK will show a film every month on the fourth Wednesday of the month at 2pm. We are not allowed to publicise which film is to be shown under the terms of the licence, but you can find out by looking at the noticeboard at the Community Centre, or picking up a leaflet there. This event is free, refreshments are available from the cafe.

Do you enjoy a game of Scrabble? Would you like some new people to play with? We are experimenting with having some Scrabble afternoons or evenings and if it proves popular we will offer these regularly. The next session is on Tuesday 26th March 2.30-5pm. Cost only £2. In the meantime there are two Scrabble sets at the Centre, which you can use at any time for a game with friends.
Margie Glasgow has been awarded a British Empire Medal in the 2019 Honours list for her contributions to the Thomas Gifford Trust and other local charities. Margie was instrumental in driving forward the Community Centre project and we are very grateful to her. This award is truly well-deserved.
TG's cafe is now offering baked potatoes at lunch time, with a choice of fillings: cheese, baked beans (or both), tuna and sweetcorn with mayo. Why not stay for lunch after your sporting activities, or drop in for a tasty, warming lunch?
We'd love to reunite you with your possessions! Most items will be kept for 14 days. Valuables such as watches, jewellery and expensive sports equipment will be kept for 28 days. Each Wednesday between 1 - 5pm unclaimed items will be displayed in the centre and can be purchased for a nominal amount. After this, they will be given to charity.
