MEET OUR STAFF
Craig Fryer My involvement in community work began when I finished my A-Levels at college. I signed up as a volunteer at a local community centre and loved the good work that the charity was doing to improve the lives of people. That was ten years ago! I joined Park Farm Community Centre in November 2018 to deliver an exciting new Big Lottery Project and help this wonderful charity to explore new avenues and projects. In my spare time I enjoy a good true-crime Netflix documentary, going for walks with my high-maintenance pooch and dabbling with graphic design.

MEET OUR VOLUNTEERS
I was first involved in this community centre in the early 90s, back in the days when it was known as the "Black House", and when I was just in my teens. Fast forward 20 or so years, and I am back here giving my time and energy to our community once again. I truly believe Park Farm has a big and bright future at the centre of this community for years to come. When I do have some spare time between volunteering at Park Farm and my full time IT jobs, I enjoy travelling. One trip that comes to mind as I write this is a weekend I once when in the town of Chernobyl, a holiday like no other. I also enjoy flying around the county side on my paramotor, high above the clouds with my music in my ears.

I am a family man who enjoys cooking, keeping fit and watching live music.
