Skerton community centre is celebrating its 21st birthday on Sunday 29th October from 12 until 2pm. Everyone is welcome to come and enjoy some lunch on a “pay as you feel” basis and celebrate the opening of our new building and also our fantastic new community mural.
We are also hoping that all groups that run at the centre, will have a representative to talk to people and show what wonderful things they do here at Skerton community centre.
So please come and see just what takes place here and hopefully you too will find something that you can get involved in.
A big thankyou to everyone who came to our fundraising bingo night last week .We raised £116.80 which is great, and will go towards providing a great residential trip for our youth group this summer.
Its that time of year again and were planning our next family bingo night
Our bingo nights are aimed to bring people together within the centre and raise funds for a yearly youth residential trip.
If anyone has anything that they would like to donate towards our raffle we would be very grateful.

A little reminder for all of our wonderful youth group members and parents, please don’t forget that we have our next bagpacking is at Morrisons in Morecambe on Sunday 3rd May. If you (or your child) can help, please get in touch with us and let us know. You can call the centre, text Kerry or message our Facebook page…there are lots of ways to get in touch!
Our recent bagpacking sessions have proved lucrative thanks to the hard work of young people and every penny earned goes straight into our fund for the residential trip this summer.
As you can see, this is a very busy time for us! Don’t forget: we have our bowling trip next Tuesday 28th (6pm) and our fundraising bike ride is on Tuesday 19th May (4.45pm) and that’s in addition to our bagpacking.
If ever you’re unsure of any dates, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Thank you very much!
