Every Monday morning:

Community Café, from  9.00 am – 12.00 noon

The Monday morning Café sessions are about giving people a chance to get out of the house and have a chat, a cuppa and homemade cakes & bakes. Or you may just want to have some time to yourself and read the papers or a magazine (these are provided).  Everyone’s very welcome, including children. Emergency services in uniform receive a free cuppa. Please spread the word and join us if you can!


Couch to 5K –   This is an NHS-backed initiative to get us doing some gentle exercise each week. One group started in January and is now running regularly. A second group started in March, a new cohort started in June, and new members are always welcome.

Do get in touch if you are interested in any of these activities – scarthhall@gmail.com

And if running is not for you, there’s lots more on offer to benefit your well being – why not try arts and crafts? contact Janeyoungart@me.com

A hilarious, heart-warming and thought-provoking tour of heroism across the country – including where you are – featuring music, song and spellbinding visuals.

Audience feedback:

“A brilliant play. Got people to think about what they do in their lives and how they too might be heroes.”

“A lovely lovely show. It’s funny, moving and thought-provoking – three things that theatre should be. It’s very engaging. Makes you think about your own life and other people’s lives.”
