After School Clubs

After school clubs run in partnership with the Army, RAF and other local communities for 5 to 13 year olds. Parents and guardians are welcome to stay and have a cup of tea, take part or just chat. They provide a safe place to wind down after school to be creative with clay and stuff, cook cakes and share them round and take excess energy outside with football and hopscotch. Needless to say there is always somebody who prefers to use our large flat screens and computer games.

 

 

Community Drop-in

The lower deck is used as a café and community centre, for meeting friends and neighbours. Internet access and photo scanning facilities are used regularly.

The bus has become a packed out venue for a Christmas party, short courses and presentations and even an opportunity to have a go with the help of a local sculptor.
