What’s available

Obviously during the current COVID-19 pandemic, not all of the services listed below are available: we hope to bring them all back once restrictions allow.

During our initial consultations with the community before we took ownership of the Dog Inn, we asked for a list of events and activities the community wanted, needed and would support. The list we received was extensive and we are working our way through it to hopefully fulfill all the needs of the community.
