Weigh loss group

Weekly weigh-in and support class is held at The Centre – contact us for details

Coming Soon – Yoga for all ages and abilities.  To learn more contact us now.

Naming Services

Times are changing and whereas a few years ago, everyone wanted their child Christened in Church, many parents do not want that now.  However they still want a formal ceremony to introduce their child to friends and family, before throwing a party of celebration.  The Naming Ceremony is a perfect opportunity to do that.  It can be designed to suit each child and can include as much or no religious content.  During the Ceremony the child is offered the opportunity to receive their Spiritual Name, if the parents desire.  The Naming Ceremony can be conducted at any venue.  So far we have officiated at The Centre, a Hotel, in a garden, in a field, in a hall.  Contact us for more details.

Wedding Ceremony/Wedding Blessing Ceremony

We are a registered building to conduct marriage ceremonies and are able to work with couples to design a service to their specific taste.  The ceremony can include as much or as little or no – religious content.  Wedding Ceremonies must take place in The Centre but Wedding Blessing Services may take place at any venue.  Contact us for more details

Funeral Services

One of the services that we are proud to offer is that of conducting a funeral service.  We meet with bereaved family members and together plan a service fitting for the loved one who has passed over.  Where the service actually takes place is the choice of each family.  Some request a service at The Centre before a burial at The Cemetery or a Cremation.  Others prefer a service at the chapel before a burial or others opt for a service and committal at the crematorium.  Whatever your preference, we guide you through this difficult time to ensure you are supported and comforted and that the service portrays your loved one.  Contact us for more details or simply ask the undertaker to employ our services.

Funeral Planning

We are aware that plans are available for one to plan and pay for your funeral now, however this involves pre-payment and does not include listing any personal details. You will find on our website a form that anyone can print off and complete for free.  The form asks you questions and offers you the opportunity to write about your life and to record music and other details that you would like included in your service.  Believe it or not we have visited many families who have no idea what their loved one would like and many do not know details of their life either.  The idea is that you complete the form, tell your loved ones where you have filed it, put a note in your diary to read through it each year and make any changes and then sit back and relax.  If you would like help to complete it we offer home visits to assist you for £20-£30.  It is a wonderful gift for your loved ones as it takes the pressure off them at a very difficult time.  Contact us for details.

Chair Covers & Organza Sashes/Bows

If you want to add a bit of class to your service/ceremony we can offer you white chair covers (also available for hire at other venues).  Organza sashes in the colour of your choice can also be hired.  Our supplier is able to put on the covers and tie the bows ready for you to arrive at the transformed venue. Contact us for details.  See our FaceBook page for photos.  Contact us for details

We are delighted to be able to recommend a professional photographer, who works for The Centre offering us very reasonable rates.  He is experienced at all types of photography including Wedding Ceremonies, Naming Ceremonies, Private family and individual Photo-Shoots (full and mini shoots), he is also experienced at animal portraits and has produced some wonderful pet photographs of dogs, cats, birds and horses.  He also will attend any party to capture your memories from wedding receptions, children’s parties, engagement parties, anniversary parties and all other occasions.
