Places of Welcome in Uttoxeter.
Mon 13 May 2019
Places of Welcome is a growing network of community groups, each keen to provide their neighbourhood with a place to go for a cuppa, a chat and some support if needed. A recent addition to this network is Renew Church in Uttoxeter, which hosts a vibrant and friendly craft group on Tuesday evenings between 7.30 and 9.00pm.
Places of Welcome Facilitator – Judith Parry - had the privilege of joining this group on Tuesday 30th May at its launch as a Place of Welcome. The attached photo shows those who attended that evening, together with the flower arrangements they enjoyed learning how to make.
Other local Places of Welcome are St. Mary’s Church in Uttoxeter town centre, which is open on Thursday mornings. Uttoxeter Cares on Holly Road is also part of the network, with an open door and a warm welcome for all. Two other venues soon to launch as Places of Welcome are the Library and Uttoxeter Heath Community Centre, due to open on Tuesday afternoons and Friday afternoons respectively. People who wish to seek out a warm welcome will soon be spoiled for choice.
