Knighton Hub Dates & Details

 After careful consideration, Bracken Trust has decided to remain at the Community Centre in Knighton (at least until its current grant expires in March 2024) for its fortnightly hub. However, the day will change to a Wednesday. This means that it will be open on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month from 9.30a.m. – 3.30 p.m. As well as scheduled appointments, our drop-in service will be running, so please feel free to pop in for a cuppa and a chat.

Ann Williams, Chief Executive, would like to take this opportunity to thank the Community Centre Committee for their support to date and for agreeing to some changes that will make the areas leased more comfortable and relaxing for patients.
