St Cuthbert's Centre Entrance

There is a lift to all floors with toilets (including disabled) on the ground and second floors. Baby changing facilities are available on the second floor.

The reception desk is open every weekday between 9 am and 4 pm, for information about activities, hiring one of the many rooms in the Centre or a guided tour.

St. Cuthbert’s Community

Slowly and gently returning!

Two children’s groups are returning to the centre this week, so there are signs of returning to ’normal’.

They will join the pre-school which has been on its own in the centre since the lockdowns.

Other groups are a way off yet – sorry.

Due to the pandemic the centre does not have a caretaker or cleaner at the moment so if you can volunteer to help in the church or centre with any jobs just let us know.

It will be lovely to meet again, even with a few restrictions.
