The Fraser Centre Community Trust opened our new community hub in November 2019.
The opening of the hub was the result of a community led project which began in 2011. During the project a website was created www.friendsofthefrasercentre.com to focus on the project.

We are looking for a volunteer, who must have their own computer and access to internet, who would be happy to work from home, flexible hours to record all the information from the website of our project.
