MECHANICS, plumbing and meditation are just some of the skills on offer at a new community centre in Warwick.

Roots to the Future is opening its first community centre in the town on Monday October 31 with the aim of educating communities through a whole host of practical skills.

The not-for-profit organisation already has centres up and down the country and Warwick residents can get a peek at theirs at open days on Monday (October 24) and Tuesday (October 25) between 10am and 4pm, ahead of the grand opening.

Tommy Hickin, Founder of Roots To the Future, said: “We’re so excited to open the centre and help the local community to learn key, essential skills. Our ethos is to provide a Practical Education for Every Generation. We aim to provide men, women, boys and girls, with a holistic learning experience.”

The Community Centre, at Scar Bank, is equipped with two large classrooms, a mechanics area and a workshop where people of all ages will be able to learn new skills and gain confidence in a wide range of disciplines.

Tommy added: “From October 31 our team of qualified volunteers will be offering a huge variety of affordable courses including mechanics, engineering, building, carpentry and plumbing every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at the centre.

“We’ll also offer a number of sporting activities, self defence and spiritual practices such as meditation and mindfulness on the same days. It doesn’t stop there as each Thursday and Friday we will be offering an outdoor-based learning experience including, archery, outdoor cooking, bushcraft and horticulture at our beautiful piece of nearby land.

” Our team of volunteers bring a wealth of experience and expertise and we can’t wait to get started.”
