Netherthird Community Centre are making great strides in opening their services back up to locals after some bore the brunt of lockdown restrictions – and are proud to introduce a new Food Larder while they’re at it.

The community larder will provide homemade treats and hearty meals to those who need it starting from this week.

The dignified Food Larder opens on Monday, September 7 and will be available to all those who purchase a membership card.

Cumnock Chronicle:

The membership card is valid for one year, costs £1 and will enable locals to shop as they please.

The centre has outlined £1 as the minimum spend and £5 as the maximum spend per visit. Homemade frozen meals can also be purchased at £1 per meal, those of which include mince and tatties and homemade soup for 50p.

The centre is looking to build up different stock and expand the service even more.

Posting on Facebook, the centre said: “This I hope you agree is an amazing addition to all we offer within the centre.

“Same restrictions apply for your safety, three customers at any one time.

“As always we will have free “stuff” on offer too.

Cumnock Chronicle:

“Please come along and support this great new initiative, we are truly excited to have been able to make this happen.”

The centre is also delighted to be able to reopen the Community Cafe again as well as the charity shop and community gym.

The charity shop and the gym will reopen from Monday, September 7 with three customers allowed in at any one time to ensure social distancing is adhered to.

Gym-goers must book at least 24 hours in advance.
