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 our After School Club is open until 6.30 pm. During the school holidays our holiday club is open to 4-11 year olds from ANY school (plus 3 year olds if they are ready for our setting). We have exclusive use of the large, grassed outdoor area and extensive space indoors to enable us to follow Covid Government guidance for holiday clubs.
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. We have a table football, air hockey, a home corner, book corner, transport corner, construction area, dens 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. We have 3 computers, Xbox 3 and a wii games machine connected to a large TV which are always popular with the children. At the After School Club we start by sitting down to a hot snack.
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.
