Covid 19 statement

Due to the current pandemic and advice from the UK Government regarding social movements, we have no choice but to close down both our Broadgate House centre and Tonic 44 Community Cafe and suspend all projects for the forseeable future. 
We shall keep posting on our Facebook page with regular updates etc.

We are still contacting all our members each week by telephone and looking into a range of digital provisions to keep in touch.  

See you on the other side.....
