THE WELLFIELD ROOM is available for hire at very reasonable rates, is easily accessible and can seat 25 people. It is also available FREE OF CHARGE to self-help voluntary groups where the majority of its members are living in Hatfield and on low income or state benefits. If you know of any such group, who are looking for somewhere to meet, let us know!
Our SCOOTER LOAN SCHEME has become very successful in giving local residents back their independence. Over 50 people have benefited from the scheme and, as scooters are ‘recycled’, more will benefit in the future. If you know anyone who is virtually housebound and would benefit from the loan of a scooter, let us know!
