An ‘Unforgettable’ Open Day

“It was great to be back in the Centre after so long. A chance to meet friends and make new ones. Thank you.” Laura, a local resident who came to our Open Day 2022.

We were absolutely thrilled with the turnout at our recent Open Day. Jen, one of Centre Coordinators, did an incredible job arranging the event. She had big ambitions and her hard work really paid off – the Centre was well and truly buzzing!

It was wonderful to see so many familiar faces and meet some new members of the community. We are extremely grateful to all the artists, makers, musicians, yoga instructors and volunteers who helped us make the day so engaging, and gave visitors an authentic taste of what we offer here at St Werburghs Community Centre.

The feedback from the workshops with Lucy’s Little Crafters was extremely positive and the good news is that she’s going to start running weekly sessions. From September Lucy will offer craft sessions for pre-school children and their grownups from 9am – 10 am on Tuesdays. The Centre was so busy in fact that the cafe sold out of coffee and we had many happy visitors who told us how much they enjoyed the day:

“It was amazing because of the drums and a slide”. Zoe, aged 4.

“I want to thank the community centre for gifting my baby and I – as well as the rest of the attendees – such a lovely and unforgettable day. We especially enjoyed the African drumming sessions, the children’s playground and the delicious BBQ. The whole day was very well organised by all the employees and volunteers of the community centre. We can’t wait for next year! Thanks for everything, see you soon.”
