Central Branch

FIRS have many activities going on every weekday. Check out our Central Branch weekly timetable below for different sessions. The benefits of being a self funded registerd charity is that the cost of each session is minimal to you.We don’t earn profit we earn friends. Each Central Branch session usually costs £1.20 (but the extended sessions of Art, Badminton and Whar Hall Craft Groups have higher charges to cover longer rental periods)  which is payable to the leader at the session. So pick a session and come along. If you are a new member phone our friendly leader of the session you wish to attend and confirm you are attending in advance.
