We wish you a very Merry Christmas!
Ho! Ho! Ho! It's almost Christmas, we are busy little elves in all of our centres this week, wrapping the wonderful presents that kind people from all over the region have donated so that the families and individuals we support are able to share some seasonal joy. We're preparing for the different Christmassy events we have planned and so our opening times will reflect this.
There are no drop in's this week and we have limited availability for our Gateway open access at The Venus Centre for general advice and support. One to one support will, of course, continue. Our Supported Accommodation is also unaffected by these changes, all housing support and operations will continue as normal. If you would like to check availability of Centre opening times this week, please call us on 0151 474 4744.
Following on from their first successful festive season in 2016, Venus Makers Group have homemade presents and crafty gifts to sell in their pop up shop at The Arts Hub, 47 Lark Lane, Liverpool L17 8UW this week, so go along and see what beautiful home made gifts you can pick up!
