  • A large front room on the ground floor, which is used as a social area, with comfy sofas, a TV and DVD, a Wii for those who enjoy fun and fitness, and hot and cold drinks offered for a small donation
  • Also on the second floor, we have a computer suite with a tutor in attendance on Wednesday and Friday afternoons.
  • A bright and cheerful art room on the first floor, where our art tutors offer classes such as decoupage, clay work, encaustic wax painting, drawing, painting, mosaics and much more. 
  • Our kitchen on the first floor is in use regularly with a cookery tutor to help with recipes fortnightly.
  • We have manicure materials which can be used by all or we have people who can help.
  • We also have a small garden area with a table and 8 chairs on decking with hanging baskets and pots that make the area a pleasant place to sit outside with a hot drink with friends. It is also the one place where people can smoke.
