Additional capacity for groups at the Community Centre
Manhattan Day Centre have outgrown our premises. We have loved having them here every Tuesday for the last two years and we wish them well in their new premises.
As a result we have additional capacity for groups, particularly on Tuesdays with both of the ground floor meeting rooms being available at present.
If you know of anyone who may be interested, please share this with them or get them to contact us at the centre. You are welcome to pop in and look around.
