We have received some funding to go towards our new Mobility Scooter Shelter from Wades charity.  We have also had a ramp built for easy access to our building.  We have chains, padlocks and rain covers on hand if you need any.  If you attend our Social Centre please use this scooter shelter as we are not allowed mobility scooters in the building for Health & Safety reasons.
