Aspiring Communities Together(previously Yemeni Community Association) opened its new Healthy Living Centre on 10th March at the Fir Vale Centre on Earl Marshal Road, thanks to a grant from the National Lottery’s ‘Reaching Communities Capital Build’ programme.

The facility was opened by Lord Mayor Talib Hussain, and continued with speeches by Abtisam Mohammed, ACT’s Chief Executive and Councillor Jackie Drayton.

Guests were given guided tours of the women-only gym and fitness studios.

The new café, open to the public, provides volunteering opportunities, free wifi access, and workshops in healthy eating and cooking skills.

Income generated by the café and gym will be re-invested in the community.

Gym times: 8am – 8pm Monday – Friday. 10am – 5pm weekends.

Café times: 8.30am – 3.30pm Monday – Friday.
