We had an Our Place meeting to finalise the New Worley Our Place plan
on the 6th March here at the community centre.The meeting was chaired
by Rachel Reeves MP and Dr. Andrew Sixsmith.
The Our Place plan has now been agreed to by partners
and will be available to view on the website soon. We are also planning a public
event to present the plan and keep the local community fully informed.
Congratulations to our Volunteer Bruce Abbott who has completed level 2 Community development and Health with our partners at Healthy Living Network.
Bruce is now running the Tuesday Gardening group at the centre (2.30 – 4.30pm Tuesdays) and is involved in a number of the projects at the community centre
This is a great achievement for Bruce and we look forward to supporting him going forward – well done Bruce!
As Spring approaches our Mens Walking group is going from strength to strength. In the last few weeks we have walked to Beeston, Armley Mills, Kirkstall Abbey , Bramley Falls Wood, Western Flatts Park and Leeds Canals. We always come back to the centre in time for lunch and a great time is had by all.
The group is supported by John Battle, Tim Dawtry and Bill Graham so if you want to come along just ask at the centre or come to the centre at 9.30am on a Friday morning and come along.
Its a great way to get out of the house, get some fresh air in your lungs and enjoy some good company….and you get a free hot dinner!
The mens walking group is supported by funding from the City Connect project – Thank you!
Since February and due to demand we now have 2 Job club sessions every week.
Every Monday Job club is 12.30 – 2.30pm and every Wednesday Job Club runs 10am – Midday. Our volunteer (Ricky – pictured) is great at helping with CVs, universal jobmatch and finding the job your looking for. Our café is open as well so you can get a cup of tea while you search on line.
Get help finding work or training – just pop in!
