Our Information Centre for New Arrivals continues to provide much needed support to people who are new to the area and are often facing complex issues. This need has been recognised by Wellingborough Borough Council, who will be contributing towards this work over the next two years from April 2016.
Thank you to all those who support Victoria Centre and our activities
Women Have a Go group
The Women Have a Go group is currently funded by Avon, emphasis of the group is to 'Reuse, Repair and Recycle'. This project continues to support women in making the most of textile resources in times of financial hardship. The women enjoy creating while making friends. New members are always welcome.
In recent years the group have designed and made the `Victoria Centre Celebration Quilt' in celebration of the centre's 30 years of service to the community, and then were commissioned by Wellingborough Interfaith Group to make a drape depicting symbols of various faiths.
The group designed and made a quilt which was entered into the `Gift of Quilts’ initiative and will made Pennants with Victoria Centre childcare to donate to ‘Quilts4London’, in celebration of the London Olympics and Paralympics in 2012. Making a contribution to the Olympics 2012 is an historical milestone that will be marked in Victoria Centre's history.
