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 from 9am-6pm Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 9am-7pm on Wednesday and Friday and 9am-4.30pm at weekends and Bank Holidays, serving hot and cold drinks and snacks.
The longer hours and new offerings are in response to customer requests. There are board games and puzzles available if you want to use this space to meet and socialise in that way.
Please note that food can be made to order, so if you need large amounts, or want something specific, please call in or ring 01608 811878 at least a day in advance.
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 an impromptu quiz if enough people there 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, soya & skimmed milk 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.
Do you enjoy a game of Scrabble? Would you like some new people to play with? We have an afternoon once a month where people can come and play. The next session is on Tuesday 10th Dec 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.
The gym now opens at 8.30am, rather than 9am on weekdays. The rest of the centre won't be open until 9am. Remember also that on Wednesday mornings there is a class in the gym between 9 and10am, so it's best to avoid that time. Weekend opening remains 9am-1pm. Thanks to our staff (espeically Jenny and Jason) for getting in extra early to do this - it takes quite a while to get the gym set up.
Once again we will have live French cafe style guingette music on offer over lunchtime on Sunday 24th November. Please join us for a relaxing Sunday lunchtime.
As part of our Local Author Talks series , Andrew Lawson, will tell the unexpected story of how he first became involved in producing books based on his photography. Wed 4th December at 7.30pm. See events page for details.
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.
The next monthly quiz night is on Wed 27th November, set by James Whitehead. The café and bar open at 7.15pm for a prompt start at 7.45pm. Price £5 per player. More details here. Many thanks to Clive Gibson-Leitch for doing us an excellent quiz in October!
