Somerford ARC is a registered charity, set up by local residents of Somerford Estate (the Trustees), with the purpose of opening and running a much needed Community Centre.
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.
Grant of £2955
We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded a grant of £2955 from the Wessex Water Foundation Community Fund. This grant will support our work to provide a weekly Lunch Club for the elderly and cover the cost of transport to and from Somerford ARC for the mobility challenged. The lunch club is held every Wednesday throughout the year, with a special Christmas lunch and entertainment.
