ONLINE COMMUNITY

Our community continues to thrive during lockdown

 

The Old Bath House Community Centre is now closed until further notice, however, until we can welcome you back with open doors, we have provided this page to help you stay connected with your community. You will find useful information about local help and food projects, volunteering, online classes and activities, online community groups, and official advice on Covid-19.
We will endeavour to update this page with further helpful information as and when we have it.
On behalf of all the Team at The Old Bath House in Wolverton, we hope that you are safe and well, and we’ll see you again soon!
