We still need more volunteers. Can you help? Please contact Loretta or Andrea
The Chappell Centre is open Tuesday to Friday, from 9 am until 2:30 pm serving snacks, hot and cold drinks and light lunches. Last orders at 2 pm. Saturday opening during term time 9 am to 12 pm
The lounge is available most afternoon after 2:30. Could you make use of the space for an hour for a support group, a discussion group, a group sharing a common interest? There would be no charge so long as you are not already a recognised organisation and you would be open to welcoming other people to join you. You may wish to meet monthly or weekly. Speak to Loretta or Andrea if you are interested.

On April 22nd 16 people born in 1926, each accompanied by a friend or family member responded to our invitation and enjoyed an afternoon tea party at the Chappell Centre. This was in honour of our Queen's 90th birthday. Our MP Fiona Bruce joined us. It was a lovely afternoon as old friendships were rekindled. Andrea made a beautiful birthday cake which was cut by the guest whose birthday was closest to the Queen's
After being with the Chappell Centre since its inception, Katie is moving to pastures new. We'd like to thank her for being an integral member of the team & wish her well in the future!
Many of the Chappell centre volunteers along with Katie and Anne are taking part in EVERY STEP COUNTS, Congleton’s walking challenge to the town to walk at least 5,000 steps a day during July.
As part of the WI centenary celebrations the Mossley branch has added a splash of colour to the Village Hall car park by creating a new flower bed. Thank you to all involved in this project – it looks wonderful.
A coffee morning in aid of the charity MENTAL HEALTH RESEARCH UK took place on July 11th. This was organised by Fred and Elizabeth Whitehurst in memory of their son, Adam. They raised over
£1,000. Thank you to all those who supported this very good cause. Chappell centre volunteers served tea, coffee and cakes, but took time out for a photo shoot with Elvis.
Well done and thank you to Lily and Chloe of 2nd Congleton Guides, together with their leader Mrs Dorothy Dentith, who cleared our car park of 32 bags of leaves!!!!
These photographs show some of the many uses that have been made of the Chappell Centre including discussion groups, a band playing Christmas carols , Bible study group, courses on Christian faith, a Macmillan coffee morning, i pad courses, a paediatric first aid course and Christmas crafts. Recent additions include a new Congleton Chamber Orchestra for adults and talks about the history of Congleton.
We hope to run further i pad courses in the Spring. Look out for the next illustrated talk on Congleton by our local historian Peter Boon.
