Welcome to the Wrenthorpe Community Website. We hope you enjoy browsing through what we have to offer. There are so many things going on in Wrenthorpe and we aim to cover them all!
We try to keep the information on the website accurate but please check before going along to any of the activities detailed or using the information provided.
This site is run by volunteers from Wrenthorpe Community Association. As well as being a charity, the Wrenthorpe Community Association is now a company limited by guarantee, and as such the former committee members are now unpaid directors.
The directors are responsible for the lettings and management of Wrenthorpe Village Hall and the Community Centre at Valley Crescent. The Association also aims to enhance the local community spirit and help people work and play together!

Last weekend, the Community Association entertained villagers who were 80 or over for the Queen’s 90th Birthday. The Queen herself wasn’t able to be there, but we decided the closest thing was to crown a resident born in the same month as the Queen. The afternoon tea was beautifully set out, and enjoyed by all.
