Open Day and New Courses Planned for Darnall Learning Centre

Darnall Forum has moved to 245 Main Road, which some of you may remember as the Rose and Crown pub. Now we have settled in we are ready to get going with an exciting programme of training. We want to make this building a learning centre that Darnall can be proud of.

There will be an open afternoon on Wednesday 7 November from 2.00pm, and we want as many people as possible to come along for tea and cake, to have a look round and tell us what they would like to see on offer in the building.
