Monday Club

The Monday Club is a social group aimed at bringing together anyone over the age of 50 to share interests, activities and the obligatory brew and biscuit. The group usually meets on alternate Mondays in the Parish Centre at 2pm, however, it has not been possible to meet during the pandemic. We hope to have this group up and running again as soon as it is safe to do so.

Watch this space for announcements of when the packed programme of talks, activities, trips, quizzes and more will begin again.

Parents and Toddlers (0-5 year olds) meet every Tuesday afternoon in Term time from 1.15pm – 2.45pm in the Parish Centre. All mums, dads and grans etc. are welcome. There will be painting, playdough, creative fun and lots of toys to play with. There are no meetings during school holidays.

Parish Social Committee

The Parish Social Committee facilitates social activities for parishioners of all ages, which reflect the wonderful range of ethnic groups, cultures and nationalities within our Parish. We host events such as International Evenings, Quiz Nights, Ceilidhs and a Summer Hog Roast. Some of the events are fundraising activities.

Future events will be posted on this website and advertised in the Newsletters.

New ideas for future events and new members to the committee are always very welcome.

St Alban’s Catholic Primary School PTA

The purpose of this group is to foster parental interest in the school and to raise money for those activities which fall outside the school budget.

All parents are automatically members of this association and will receive regular communications from the Chair of the PTA and the Headteacher of the school.
