CHURCHES in Gosport have clubbed together to offer help and support in the town.

Peter Halsey and his wife Elayne opened Centrepeace in High Street, Gosport, with churches’ help.

Dozens of people attended the opening of the centre, which runs courses and is a drop-in for anyone who needs help.

Mr Halsey said: ‘A number of different people have come forward.

‘We have approximately 20 people on our listeners’ list.

‘Primarily, it’s for people who are distressed with all manner of things.

‘A lady had been rejected by her family, there was betrayal and she couldn’t relax at all.

‘As a result of working with us for a while she began to feel more comfortable.

‘The key is people become more peaceful once they have been listened to.’

Mayor of Gosport Councillor John Beavis opened the centre last Tuesday. For more email info@centrepeace.co.uk
