The Royal Voluntary Service in Chatham has served us well as a venue for our group meetings over the past couple of years both for this group and the old group.
Unfortunately we have had the sad news that the centre will probably be closing after they have lost £35,000 funding from the council. Without this they will not be able to continue to run. Jon will keep us updated as to what’s going on at RVS but it is likely that they will be closing their doors at the end of March.
We are now looking for an alternative venue that meets the groups needs. This includes low fees to rent the room for two hours, disabled access, a meeting room with a table and chairs, a cafe selling hot and cold drinks. Nucleus Arts has been suggested to us and Jon is looking into this but if anyone else has any suggestions please comment on this post or on our Facebook Page.
We would like to thank all the staff and volunteers at RVS for everything they do and have everything crossed that there will be a way to avoid their closure.
