A SUPPORT and guidance hub has celebrated expanding into bigger premises and reopening face-to-face appointments.

Romero Communities, which offers a range of free services and activities on a plethora of general life subjects, has moved from its long-time base at St Helen’s Church Hall on Laithes Lane, to the Lifelong Learning Centre on Laithes Crescent.

The group was forced to stop face-to-face appointments due to Covid-19 and has only just began opening its doors on a regular basis again.

Caroline Parker, a Romero Communities volunteer, said: “It’s great to have a lot more space and a dedicated space for drop-ins.

“We’ve worked all the way through the pandemic and we’ve actually still grown a lot, so it’s good to have expanded and to be able to welcome people back in.

“The past couple of years have been a very difficult time for a lot of people so it’s important we keep supporting them.

“Despite being a drop-in, we do advise people call in the morning if they can so we can avoid having to make them wait around.”
