Do you enjoy a game of Scrabble? Would you like some new people to play with? We are experimenting with having some Scrabble afternoons and if it proves popular we will offer these regularly. The next session is on Tuesday 18th June 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.
Many thanks to Nicola Morgan for keeping our grounds and beds looking lovely!
We are very grateful to Larcum's - the gifts, cards and statonery shop on Market Street for generously donating an ice-cream fridge. With recent warm weather it's already proving popular!
We are very grateful to Charlbury Town Council for their grant towards the maintenance of the Playing Close as well as free activities at the centre (such as coffee club, film club, youth club and Well Baby Clinic).
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.
There will be no quiz night in June because there is so much going on in Charlbury in June and attendance is lower in the summer. Our next quiz night will be Wed 24th July, set by Gordon Cutting. The café and bar open at 7.15pm for a prompt start at 7.45pm. Priced only £5 per player. More details here. A big thank you to Bill Stevenson for hosting our May quiz.
If you would like to run a class, or if you can help to run youth clubs, homework clubs or would be interested in helping with our youth activities, please contact the centre manager.
