Wonford Community and Learning Centre June Update
With restrictions lifting it has been lovely to welcome back many of our regular groups and activities! Hopefully Bingo, Wednesday Club and the Tea Dance will be restarting soon. Please look at our website for more information www.wonfordclc.org.uk
During the first lockdown, Food Cycle, who previously used the Centre to provide a free meal from donated ingredients, wanted to make up and deliver food parcels so Community Centre volunteers opened the Centre up for them. Food Cycle continued with their food parcels project for over a year and sent this message: ‘A massive thank you to Wonford Community Centre and its Trustees for allowing us to continue throughout the pandemic as we have been able to deliver the equivalent of 2,400 meals using nearly 10,000kg of food over the past year!’
Now that restrictions are lifting Food Cycle have decided to go back to cooking meals, initially for collection, and have decided to move to a more central location. We would like to thank Food Cycle volunteers for all they have done in Wonford over the last five years and wish them every success at the Mint Methodist Church See www.foodcycle.org.uk for more information.
We have increased the benefits of membership while keeping the cost to £5 a year. Membership now includes discounts in the café (including 50% off drinks!) as well as reductions on personal bookings, access to bingo and the opportunity to vote at the AGM.
Ludwell View Café
Our friendly Thursday morning Café is restarting on June 10th . There will be tables in the hall and outside (weather permitting!) and covid safe measures will be in place.
The food and drink is reasonably priced with vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options and there are lovely views across Wonford Playing Field to Ludwell Valley Park to enjoy. We are looking forward to welcoming customers old and new!
If you have an hour or two to spare on a regular or occasional basis and would like to get involved with your local social enterprise then get in touch with Pauline our Volunteer Co-ordinator firstname.lastname@example.org
