Charlbury Community Centre is a not-for-profit organisation, which relies on income from renting out its space. In order to be open as long as possible and offer as many services as possible we rely on some volunteer work. If you can offer anything from manning the counter for a couple of hours a week to offering training sessions, helping with homework clubs, youth clubs, children’s activities etc we would be delighted to hear from you.
The library is also partly staffed by volunteers and extra people to go on this rota just once or twice a month, would be very welcome. Please contact Rosalind Scott if you may be able to help: Rosalind.firstname.lastname@example.org, or for further details follow the links on the library page.
In order to meet our running costs and to keep our prices as low as possible, we will also have to continue to do some fundraising in the community. If you can help with this please contact us.
If you would like to donate directly to the Charlbury Community Centre, you can do so through Make-a-Donation. We are very grateful for any support however large or small.
Charlbury Art Society has completed the first phase of a Community Art Project to make and install swoops of swifts. The individual birds have been made from mosaic and the first swoop has been placed on the Nine Acres Pavilion wall in our courtyard outside the library. They look fantastic!
We now have a magnificent Christmas tree just outside the front door. Thanks to Halcyon farm discounting and delivering it, House and Carriage/MySTORE for sponsoring it and our doughty team of volunteers for erecting and decorating it. It will make a festive setting for our carol singing on Friday 14th at 8pm.
Please join us and the Charlbury School Choir to sing carols at 8pm on Friday 14th. There will be mince pies and mulled wine too - generously sponsored by the Font Cafe.
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.
The Christmas quiz night will be Wed 12th November, set by Tom Smith. The café and bar open at 7.30pm for a prompt start at 8pm. Priced only £5 per player, these quizzes are usually a sell-out so get your tickets soon from reception. More details here. A big thank you to Derek Collett for hosting last month's event.
