The café area alongside the library is a great place for friends to meet and for people to work. TG’s café is run by Community Centre staff and volunteers and is open the same hours as the Community Centre, serving hot and cold drinks and snacks.
There are board games and puzzles available if you want to use this space to meet and socialise in that way.
Aimed at retired people, but everyone is welcome. Please come along for a drink and a chat with others. Board games are available and we can organise a quiz if enough people want one. Special price for hot drinks (£1 for a tea or coffee).
Tea selection from Organic Pukka Teas includes: Three Mint, Three Ginger, Chamomile Vanilla and Manuka Honey, Love, Spiced Chai as well as Rooibos, Green tea and Earl Grey. Decaf coffee, oat milk & soya milk alternatives are available. All our teas, coffees and hot chocolate are Fairtrade.
Tap water is freely available – please use the drinking fountain near the counter to refill bottles or take a drink.
Scrabble sessions, open to anyone, on Mondays at 2pm from 22nd November onwards. A £2 donation towards the cost of the room is requested. Please join us!
Please join us for carols, mince pies and mulled wine on Saturday 18th December from 7pm outside the Community Centre. Singing will be led by Jennie Grierson and some children from the pirmary school choir. Refreshments are provided in conjunction with St Mary's Church.
The Thomas Gifford Trust is a charity which owns and manages the Charlbury Community Centre and also the Playing Close. There is presently a vacancy for a trustee, and we'd like to hear from you if you might be interested. The trustees meet every 2 months (on a Wednesday evening), but as a team are involved, with others, in the management and day to day running of the Community Centre. It is a friendly and committed team and amongst the existing trustees there is a wide range of skills and experience. For the new trustee we are not looking for any particular skill set, but it would be good to have someone who uses and knows the Community Centre. If you are interested or would like to know more about what might be involved, please contact Tanya: email@example.com Information about the Trust and the other trustees can be found here
A huge thank you to House and Carriage, Halcyon Honey Farm and our stalwart buildings team for providing and putting up the magnificant tree. It looks fantastic!
Thanks to Charlbury Art Society for organising local people to make more beautiful mosaic swifts for the library wall. They look fantastic and they now continue in from the outside patio wall and swoop right through the building. Charlbury is proud of it's swifts, which come all the way from Africa to nest in our buildings and this is a great collaborative art project to reflect this.
You can now pick up free Lateral Flow Covid-19 testing kits from reception at the Community Centre. Full instructions are inside the box.
