Thanks to Edinburgh Woollen Mills in Stratford

A big thank you to Levie and her team at Edinburgh Woollen Mills in Stratford whose biannual fashion was held with proceeds going to WVS.  The event was initiated by Phyllis Losh who, as a long time model for the fashion shows and a regular at the Stratford Support Centre, asked that at her last show before retiring, the proceeds should go to her chosen charity.

The event rose over £400 whilst also helping to raise our profile across the area.

Rugby Support Centre closed for 4 weeks

The Rugby Support Centre will be closed from 19 September for 4 weeks due to major road works that will restrict access to the venue.

Unfortunately, we had little notice of these roadworks and since access cannot be guaranteed then we had no choice but to cancel the sessions.
