The Mill End Community Centre is on Church Street, very close to St. John’s, St. Peter’s and Shepherds primary schools and a short drive from Arnett Hills. During term-times we run our Breakfast Club from 7.30 am and our After School Club to 6.00 pm. We also offer an option to transfer to the Cloisters for those parents who need to collect their children after this time.
We are based in a large hall with an entrance lobby, an excellent kitchen, storage facilities and toilets. In the afternoon we set out the hall for a wide range of different activities. There is a pool table, table football, exercise equipment, air hockey, a home corner, book corner, den and lots of construction kits including Lego, mobilo, stickle bricks, etc. Many of the children like to sit at the tables provided for activities such as arts and crafts and colouring in. The two computers, Nintendos and wii games machines are always popular with the children. In the morning we lay out the tables for a breakfast of cereals, toast and fruit juice. In the afternoon we start by sitting down to a hot snack such as tomato, cheese and pasta.
Outside we have a fenced-off paved area which is used for our bikes and scooters, and a large enclosed field where the children can play football and other games. A large car park is available for parents to drop off their children in the morning and collect them in the afternoon.
