Our Community values
We pride ourselves on being one of the main community hubs in Alfrick and surrounding villages, and try our best to enhance the social side of village life for everyone.
It was an important condition of the success of our funding from Power 4 Change that we should benefit the community as much as possible and we take this seriously.
These are some of our values:
- Being friendly, respectful and welcome to each other, our customers and volunteers.
- Being socially inclusive and reaching out to everyone in the community, especially those who are isolated, lonely or struggling in any way.
- Organising and supporting community events to reinforce a sense of belonging in our community.
- Dementia friendly.
- Child/family friendly.
