Annual report for AGM on the 3rd of July 2023...

“Where community serves the community” - this is our aim and I think the Community centre contributes to serve the Community very well thanks to a kind and caring army of volunteers. Thank you so much to everyone who serves in whatever capacity.

The range of activities continues to expand from new skills in arts and crafts to Pilates, yoga, photography, croquet or the memory cafe. The Film Club has returned and is well supported. Have a look at our website and see what suits you! For the young people we have Rainbows, Brownies and two Youth Clubs with a current membership of 50! Sophie and the volunteers were given a Spirit of Fowey award for all their dedication to the young people.

For everyone there are the cafes which have become warm places for the winter months - Sunday cafe every Sunday from 2:30pm till 4:00 pm with tea or coffee and cake for £2.  The chaps cafe on alternate Tuesdays from 10:00 till 12:00 again with tea or coffee, pasties and sausage rolls. Tots cafe from 9:00 am till 11 am for toddlers, babies, parents and carers. During the winter months from November till the end of March we hold a lunch club serving a three-course lunch organised and cooked by Jill and Ollie Histon and the team with donations from members of the community. We are very grateful for all the hard work which it went into the into this project and were very pleased when Jill and Ollie received a Spirit of Fowey award at the Mayor Making Ceremony in May.

Sadly the need for a Food Larder grows as we live through difficult times. The community is again very generous in donating to the food larder. Lunch in a bag continues this summer for some 30 children in need of feeding organised by Michelle and the team. Thank you all very much. Helping us to help people in need and to reduce food waste. 6227.52 Kgs have been saved from landfill so far this year!

On Sunday the 9th of July at 3:00 pm there will be a demonstration of CPR and on how to use the defibrillator by Frontline Emergency Equipment Trust (FLEET). Everyone is invited to take part especially volunteers from the centre users. We are very grateful to fleet for giving us their time and expertise.

Maintenance of the Centre has continued with the entrance pathway made of recycled plastic straws being extended, windows being resealed and the entrance door made safer.

The grass and side flower borders have been tended carefully.

We have enjoyed several celebrations with a wonderfully supported Christmas fair, a superb coronation celebration fayre - despite the weather - and the Summer Fayre is planned for Saturday the 12th of August from 12 noon to 4:00 pm. We have helped to raise £625.55 for Macmillan nurses with a coffee morning.

We have to report a very busy, fun filled year at Squires Field Community Centre and is all down to the dedicated volunteers and wonderful support of the community. Thank you all.


The Director's of Squires Field Community Centre.
