About MCR Community Centre
MCR Community Centre is based on the Mail Coach Road and runs a playschool, afterschool club, summer camps and local active age club. It also has a sports hall and a meeting room which are available for hire and a playground which is open to the local community.
We run an Afterschool Service in the MCR Community Centre from Monday to Fridays 1:15-5:15pm during the school year.
