Community centre throws open its doors for free sessions for residents and pets

Published: Wednesday, 12th September 2018

Residents can take advantage of free health checks for their dogs and pick up a range of community advice and information at an open day.

Sneyd Green Hub (formerly community centre) is staging a drop-in day for local people with a whole host of activities on offer. The event will take place at the Ralph Drive venue on Thursday 13 September, 10am – 5pm. It’s another event at the centre organised by ward councillor Joanne Powell-Beckett.

The day will see vets and experts from the PDSA give animal welfare advice, free wellbeing checks for dogs, and carry out dog nail clipping and ear cleaning. PDSA customers can also take advantage of vaccinations for their pets, by booking in advance via 01782 413415.

Residents will also be able to find out more about, and sign-up to, adult learning courses; receive debt advice; report anti-social behaviour; find out about apprenticeship opportunities and volunteering; take advantage of public health information; learn fire safety advice; and speak to representatives from the DWP on Universal Credit issues.

Councillor Powell-Beckett said: “I’m really pleased to be hosting another community drop-in event at the centre. We have staged a number of these over the past months and I’d like to encourage as many people as possible to come along – there is something for everyone.

“The event started off a visit by the PDSA, and they will be bringing their large purple roadshow vehicle with them. But the event has really grown and is now a full-on community service day and there will be lots of officers and experts on hand to give advice.”
