A volleyball session takes place in the sports hall on Wednesday evenings from 8-10pm run by experienced coaches Steven Fairhurst Jones and Felicity Brooks. Whether you’ve never played before and want to give it a go, or you haven’t played since you were at school or on holiday, this session gives you the opportunity to come and play one of the most popular sports in the world. Men and women of all abilities are welcome to this friendly, relaxed session, and the focus will be on helping everyone to join in, learn and and enjoy the game. Your first session is free!
Please contact Steven if you are interested on 07879 063 934, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Witney Netball club runs sessions on Tuesday evenings from 7-9pm. We have players of all abilities and always welcome new members. The first training session is free of charge so why not come along and give it a try? Contact: email@example.com for further information.
There are many other sports which can be played in the Community Centre but for which there are not yet any classes or special sessions. Please ask about any you are interested in, especially if you may be able to start up a new sport, activity or club. Examples might include:
Charlbury Community Centre has full disabled access and facilites (such as showers, WCs etc) and can cater for most needs.
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.
