Community News

We welcome you to pop in and say hi - at this stage we are open 11am-2pm Tuesday and Thursday. We hope this will be a warm and welcoming 'hub' to support our community in these challenging times. The community hub will also be a place to share ideas and make plans for activities and events for the months ahead. We welcome your ideas, skills and expertise!

Among the projects brewing is small group gatherings through Neighbourhood Support, a fun and informal way to connect over the month of June. More details to come.

Please remember that there is help available if you are struggling – contact Penny at, call into the community centre at 8 Simpsons Lane or call the welfare line 0800 24 11 11.

Take care, be kind. #tekapotogether
