Great news! Funding received from Heart Of England Community Foundation has been added to the total raised so far and work has been able to start on the ladies toilets.

New tiles and a hand drier will make a start to smartening up the facilities and making them fit for purpose.

Please bear with us whilst the renovations are under way and if you’d like to help with a spot of painting and decorating then please get in touch.
