Bringing people together

Social Clubs and Events

Sport club

From Sunday-league football to run clubs and virtual workshops, you can join the ever-growing army of community members stepping forward to share their talents and skills.

Start one today

If you have a great idea for social activity or forming a sports club, tell us about it and start your own group. We will support you with the initial cost of setting up and venue reservation.

Social dining

Each social dining group decides when they meet and what food they want to serve, but they all have two essential ingredients; a generous helping of fine food and a healthy pinch of good company.

We welcome people from all communities to join us for a game of casual Football and Futsal which usually takes place once a week. Find our more below:
