At St Gabriel’s Centre we love to see people of all ages enjoying spending time together whether working, learning, or playing.  Whilst often aimed at a particular age group, most of our activities are open to, and attract people of all ages. Come and join in our activity groups during the day. We offer craft groups, cooking, gardening, gentle exercise and a men’s shed. We also hold regular evening craft groups and occasional one off evening sessions.
