The Rooksdown Reporter is our Parish Magazine that is published 3 times a year. They are normally delivered through your letter box. If you have not received a recent copy you can collect one from the Community Centre or read the latest edition here.

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?
