Every Monday morning: Community Café, open  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, 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! Email Joanne if you have any questions or if you’d like more information.


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 and is building up to the magic 5k target.

And in April a group started a regular walk – nor too far, to enjoy the fresh air and a chat.

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