The Institute is a resource for the community and so it is important that local people have an input into the activities/classes that are on offer, therefore we welcome your feedback and suggestions. We are always keen to expand the provision of community services and opportunities we offer. If you would like to see a new activitiy group/class introduced at the Institute then contact us on
