Zara's House is closed for the rest of August.  It gives us two cycles of vigilance following possible community transmissions.


We hope nothing will happen, but we need to exercise greater caution.  SO, our women’s centre and children’s centre buildings will not open until Monday, 7th September.  


Before the end of the year we hope to have squashed our enemy Covid-19 from our area so we can have a Springtime celebration at Zara’s House. We can welcome the friends and businesses who have been so generous to us. We can get on with all we want to do – we ARE in it together!
