Merryoaks Community Hall is a community centre serving Neville's Cross Durham. In order to remain open so the community can access the community library, borrow our litter pickers, make themselves a drink, or simply use the loos- we need people to be present in the building and keep thing ticking over smoothly. The centre has no paid employees-so volunteers like you will be the only way of keeping the building open for the benefit of the community.
