Centre Closure Update

We are still not in a position to open to the public, as of today 21/08/2020.

We are however able to process online orders, via our Website


The website is secure and providing we have the items you require in stock, they will be dispatched to you by post.

We are sorry we cannot open the Centre to the public, as of yet, however as things change, we hope that it will not be too long before we can resume public access.

Again, thank you for your patience, in this matter.

Centre Closure Update

As the Scottish Government starts to ease restrictions on shops and business opening again, we are not currently in a position to reopen the Centre to the public.

Once we have assessed the requirements for social distancing and put in place the necessary equipment to keep both our staff and members of the public safe, we will update this website, to advise everyone.

Thank you for your patience and we look forward in the future to welcoming you back.
