Project Sunset Event Timetable

Like many other community organisations, we have been affected by the increasing pressures of the rising cost-of-living, mixed with a fall in funding. Over the past year, we have faced a number of challenges but worked hard to ensure that we continued to deliver the best possible service for our community. However, it is with sadness that we have been forced to accept that this chapter of our journey will come to an end in April.
