Two of our volunteers taking a well-earned break in the sun on our new picnic bench, which we bought with the money we won from Tesco Bags of Help. We bought two of these benches and two parasols to go with them.

Thank you to everyone who voted for us and we hope that you will come down to the centre to enjoy our outside seating area with us.
