OFCA News appears every two months and aims to keep members informed about the activities of the Association and everything going on at the Community Centre.

The April/May 2024 issue will be the last Newsletter issue to be printed and distributed to all members, after which it will be compiled online and sent by email. We expect that some printed copies will still be made available at the Community Centre, details yet to be finalised.

As from April there will be a ‘Subscribe’ button on this page which will allow readers to register their email address to receive future Newsletters, and we encourage existing members to use this. Many members have already provided their email addresses via membership forms, but some of these may not be accurate or up-to-date in our records. Every Newsletter will also offer the option to unsubscribe.

We welcome contributions from community groups who use the Centre, and news and events items relevant to Old Felixstowe. Our Newsletter schedule and submission deadlines are as follows:
