This great service was started last year (2022) to compliment the facilities we run here at the Friends of Stour Connect centre. This service provides catering for special events such as business functions, parties, charity events, etc., and prepares sandwiches, sausage rolls, small quiches & pies, and cakes. The service can accommodate dietary and allergy requirements including gluten free, vegetarian, and vegan; and can be delivered to the venue or collected. All money raised goes towards providing services we run here at the charity. To find out more click here...

Hydrotherapy is proven to be effective for the treatment of many debilitating conditions including back pain, neurological conditions, strokes, rehabilitation following surgery and autism, to name just a few. The pool is 8 x 4 metres in size and kept at a steady 34° Centigrade.

Men's Shed Stour
The Men's Shed Stour is now in the old Transport Garages, giving this facility a new lease of life. This move has been made due to the popularity of the 'socialising/woodworking' project. With the larger premises Men's Shed Stour will be able to offer mentoring as well as enabling attendees to join in with making our projects and making their own projects. It's a great way to meet new people, socialise and make new friends, as well as use or improve your woodworking skills in a relaxed and friendly environment.
