Who We Are

Through our motto 'Unity is Strength' we aim to promote the well-being and interest of our members; provide them with a meeting place; support individuals including the youth and elderly; take up their concerns with statutory bodies such as Local and Central Government in respect of Health, Education, Employment and Training; provide leisure and cultural activities for members and the wider community.

We have been successful in securing funding from the National Lottery Funders to add an extra fitness level for the community, which is an all-important factor for the general well-being of everyone.
