A few copies still remain and may be purchased from the office at oaken Grove Community Centre at £10 per copy.
Thanks to a successful bid to the Big Lottery Fund "Awards for All" we have recently installed automatic opening doors to the main entrance, making our Centre even more easily accessible to wheelchairs and pushchairs. In addition a side window has been converted to an automatic door, giving direct access to our lovely garden - ideal for parties and barbeques.
Thanks to a grant from the local Methodist Church Scarecrow Festival, an external ramp from the garden door allows easy access to the patio for everyone.
Trustees Dave Wells and Hazel Stevens opening the new doors into the garden, with Kevin, an admin volunteer, ready to try out the new facility.
