Social connection

Social connection is at the heart of what we do at Archie Graham Community Centre.

See the Archie Newsletter (above) for the latest activities and opportunities on offer. 

Community members are welcome to make enquiries at Reception about how to make a start in the activities of interest. An alternative is to spend some time in the Café to see the activities that ‘come and go’ and find the ones that are of interest and ‘feel right’ then make an enquiry.

Archie Cafe

The Archie Café is volunteer operated and is an ideal place to relax over a coffee and the newspaper or to meet up with friends.
The café is open on Mondays, Tuesdays & Thursdays from 10am-1,30 pm.
  
The menu consists of the full range of espresso coffees, fresh and toasted sandwiches plus a selection of sweet treats – all at affordable prices.

Outside of these times and when the Centre is open, complimentary tea and coffee is available. 

Please ask our friendly staff at Reception for assistance when attending the Centre for the first time.
