St. Mary's Church on Google Maps

Monthly Meetings, Physio Class, Speech Therapy & Singing Sessions

The Beacon Centre
St Mary's Church
Church Road
BH22 9EU

The monthly meetings are on the third Thursday of the month, in the main hall, whilst the physio led exercise class, the speech therapy and the singing sessions are in smaller adjacent rooms. There is an excellent cafe on site if any partners or friends want to wait whilst you are having a class or session and the staff are very helpful and friendly.

Parking is available at the church, although we do ask the more able bodied to use the adjacent Tesco multi story car park.
