Communities at Caritas Care

Welcome to Plungington Community Centre.

We are here on behalf of the community for the community and everyone is welcome!

Plungington Community Centre is a central hub providing a range of activities and entertainment for people of all ages in the local community. We believe that everyone in the community should have local access to affordable activities that improve health and wellbeing and reduce social isolation.

It is a place for local residents to gather to take part in a host of regular weekly activities, attend one of our events, find information, advice and guidance on the things that matter the most to them.  Our Community café is open from 10am to 2pm Monday to Friday where you can nip in for a chat with friends and staff, have a brew or a meal or just relax and watch the world go by in warm and friendly settings.

Plungington Community Centre also has a large hall, including a stage, and a number of smaller rooms, all available for hire by community groups. Ideal for large family celebrations such as weddings and birthdays, entertainment or conferences.

We hold a range of events and activities throughout the week at Plungington Community Centre to suit all interests. See below our weekly calendar of activities.
