News from the Christopher Centre for April 2024

Welcome from Linda and Kathy, Centre Coordinators

Easter is just around the corner and it isn’t looking very spring like out there! We hope the flooding and constant rain has not affected you or your property too badly. The situation of the flooding outside our building has persisted with the drain in the road having to be unblocked several times.  Inconsiderate drivers driving through it and splashing up the front of the building has caused further damage that we are still in the process of getting rectified.

Let’s hope that with the lighter nights we will all be able to get out and about a bit more and enjoy the much-needed warmer, drier weather that should be on its way.

The Centre is in full swing with all of our regular groups and a couple of new ones just starting. We have a Motorised Lego Workshop coming on Wednesday 3rd April, details on how to book will be on our Facebook page.

We have so far raised £200 for our team of runners for this years Sudbury Fun Run on Friday 29th March 2024.  The team will be running to raise vital funds for us here at the Centre. If you wish to donate, please visit our website to see our ‘Go fund me page’

The Community Depot have a Spring Quiz night with homemade pie and mash on Friday 19th April. Please see their Facebook page for details.  

The next Cake, Bake and Preserve stall at Sudbury Market will be April 29th and the next Vegan Suppers will be Friday 5th April and Friday 3rd May.

Our Menopause ‘Lets Talk’ Support Group on Thursday 4th April will have guest speaker Dr Ballari Ghosh, Obstetrician & Gynaecologist from the Oaks Hospital in Colchester. A lovely safe, friendly group with a chance for questions at the end of the talk.

The Christopher Centre is a thriving community hub where many local groups run their classes and activities. It is also a hub which provides a much-needed space for essential services to run, to serve the community in many ways including the NHS Diabetic Eye Screening Clinic, The Community Depot, The Monday Drop In , Turning Point for those affected by addiction, the Christopher Choir, and the C’Art Group to name but a few.

The Menopause Support Group is held on the first Thursday of the month, see our website for more details.

We offer a number of rooms available to hire. We also house offices used by local voluntary and community organisations. Our room hire is available on an hourly basis, from £6.50 per hour.

We aim to continue bringing a friendly community approach to the people of Sudbury and surrounding areas, please contact us if you would like to visit with a view to hosting your group.
