Hall Notices

  • We were able to start work renovating the Chapel (under our Project21 scheme) in November. Work has gone very well and the builders have handed back the Chapel for fitting out with audio-visual equipment and furniture. By September, we will be able to show photos (and provide more details) of the wonderful, new multi-use space that will also be available for hire. ********************************************************************************************************** WANTAGE MC HALL - REGULAR BOOKINGS (JUNE 2015) MONDAYS Hall: Pilates from 18:45 TUESDAYS All premises: MIND, 9:30-13:00 Hall: Wantage Camera Club from 18:45 Parlour: My Life, My Choice, 2"d evening in the month WEDNESDAYS Hall: Wednesday Fellowship, 13:00-16:00 THURSDAYS Hall: Regain Fitness, 18:45-20:30 FRIDAYS All premises: Wantage Toddlers, 9:30- 11:45 Hall: Friday Lunches, alternate weeks (12th & 26th), 11:45- 15:00 SATURDAYS All premises: Dads Out, 3rd week, 9:30-Noon SUBDAYS All premises: Methodist Worship, Junior Church & Creche, 8:30-13:00 Hall: Sunday Lunches, alternate weeks (7th & 21st), 11:45-15:00 Hall: Junior Showstoppers, 16:00-18:30
