DRC open today - Wednesday 13th December 2017

Wednesday 13th December 2017 the DRC will be open today but if you are making your way to our centre at Mackadown Lane, please take care as side roads remain icy and wet in places.


The DRC centre and office at IHWC, Mackadown Lane, Kitts Green will be closing this afternoon (Tuesday 12th December 2017) at 3pm due to an updated cold weather warning.

As long as it is not snowing heavily, we hope to open as usual tomorrow morning (Wednesday) though this will be dependent on weather conditions. Tomorrow's activities include coffee morning and taxi driver training.

If you are due to attend at IHWC tomorrow, please contact us before setting out in poor or dangerous weather conditions.
