If you have thought about volunteering we would love to hear from you. Whether you can spare a couple of hours a week or a month maybe to help out at the Youth Club or assist in hosting a coffee morning or if you would like to get an activity off the ground you will be greatly welcomed. Why not come into the Centre to discuss how you can help?

Facebook page for The Spinney

Why not sign up to the facebook group for The Spinney.

This piece of woodland around the old Park Prewett Hospital site offers a great circular walk.

Funding has been secured to improve the signage and access for the future.  The first phase of the improved footpath has been finished and the next phase will start in the next few weeks.

The facebook group will update you on events and developments to improve this space for the community.

Big Bat Walk - Saturday 22nd September

24 July 2018 at 07:08

Our Big Bat Walk will give you the chance not only to see these amazing flying mammals and their astonishing aerial acrobatics, but also learn more about them.  We supply bat detectors to help you identify the species that are swooping around and to listen to them "chattering" as they hunt for food.

If you also decorated a bat at the Summer Fair you will see if you can find yours flying in the trees!

We will meet at the Community Centre at 6.30pm with sunset only 20 minutes away.  Adults and children over 8 years are welcome to attend.  Children should be accompanied by an adult.  Attendance is free.
