What's On at Somerford ARC





Our Story

Somerford ARC is here to provide a community facility for the purposes of recreation, education and enjoyment for the residents of Somerford and the surrounding area's.  We want to further benefit the residents of Somerford by providing opportunities for them to enhance their lives.  We provide health and fitness classes as well as promoting mental well being.  Our IT Suite, which was kindly donated by Sovereign & updated with a grant from the National Lottery Community fund, allows the community to develop their computer skills and have opportunities to do free classes such as Job Club. We try and provide services here for free or at a low cost to allow everyone to access these facilities.
