It is with heavy hearts that we have to confirm the closure of both Matthews Hall and Dorothy Holman Centre for the foreseeable future. There will be no Saturday market or Tuesday seniors group. The café will be closed.

We hope you all stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you back to both venues when the situation allows it.
