Open House…coming soon

BSTC is working with a number of other organisations to put on Open House sessions at various locations this winter.
Open Houses are warm spaces where you can go to get involved in your community, grab a cup of tea and chat to others, charge your phone, maybe do a jigsaw puzzle or just read a book.
Open Houses will be available at Neetside Community Centre, the Parkhouse Centre, Bude & Stratton Branch of the Royal British Legion and the Tree Inn in Stratton. The Pearl Exchange already offers something similar, called Free Spaces, open to 18-35yr olds. Full details on opening hours below.
In the meantime, can you spare 3 hours a week to get involved? We’re essentially looking for people who can make a great cup of tea, but if you’re a whizz at board games, good at navigating the internet to point people in the right direction for help, partial to a biscuit or two, all the better!
We’re also on the hunt for donations – jigsaw puzzles, board games, packs of cards, books, recent magazines, a few toys etc. You can bring them into the Parkhouse Centre foyer where there’s a collection box.
Please email for further information about what’s involved if you’d like to be a part of Open House sessions this winter.
