Community Institute in Thorngumbald to re-open

THORNGUMBALD’S Community Institute is set to re-open. The community building has recently undergone some refurbishment work and a deep clean in order to be COVID secure. It will open again from Sunday 18th October 2020.

It will also be used by St Mary’s and the Methodist Churches for various events throughout the year.

Karen Worsnop from the Community Institute, said: “We are very fortunate in Thorngumbald to have such good facilities available to us as the Community Institute. Like all such things, however, it is a case of using them or losing them. People over many years and generations have worked hard to provide these facilities and now it is our turn to maintain and improve them.”
