  • We organise plays and other social events in the Village Hall and Valley Crescent Centre.
  • As well as maintaining this website, we produce the ‘Wrenthorpe Matters’ newsletter three times per year and times per year and a team of volunteers distributes it to every house in Wrenthorpe.
  • We are responsible for the Community Café on Wednesday mornings at Valley Crescent Centre.
