During this difficult time, our thoughts go out to those on the front line, those in isolation or vulnerable, and others who are affected by this terrible virus.

The trustees of the PTCA are trying to do our part to help those in need. We are acting as a food drop off location between 1pm and 2pm every day to allow people to drop food which will be distributed to those who need it most. If you are in the area during your daily exercise please drop off something to us. We have taken every precaution with regards to social distancing.

We are also making ear savers (devices to take the strain off of the ears while wearing face masks), face shields and scrub bags. These are being offered free of charge to anyone on the frontline or those that are vulnerable. If you would like to request some please use the contact us link in the menu above. In order to keep doing this we need to raise some extra funding so we have set up a GoFundMe page. If you are able to spare a few pound it will go a long way to supporting our efforts.

Above all else please stay safe


Happy Easter

During this stressful time we felt it was important to do something for the children so we arranged a drawing competition. The children could collect an entry form from outside of the community centre. Once they had coloured the egg they returned it to the centre and collected a free gift. The pictures were then displayed in the centres windows for all to see. The winner and two runners up from each age category will be selected on Easter Sunday and will be notified by email.
