Coppice: What’s On

What’s On at Coppice Library & Wellbeing Centre

We are working hard alongside our partners to make sure that the centre can continue to provide COVID-19 support for people experiencing emotional and psychological distress during these difficult times. We are following government guidelines, and all our activities are health and safety risk assessed.

Please do not hesitate to contact the centre if you have any queries about how we are staying safe, or if you are interested in running a Covid-secure activity in the centre.

Activities Happening Online

Zoom is a free video conferencing service that lets you talk with friends and family from all over the world.

As well as being able to keep in touch with loved ones, there are all kinds of group meetings and events taking place over Zoom. During the Covid-19 restrictions, video services such as Zoom have been used to allow virtual gatherings and 121s where physical distancing would otherwise mean these would be cancelled.
