Prior to Covid, Rouskey had a busy Community Centre which facilitated a variety of classes, events and courses within the rural, farming community. The Centre was the focal point in the area and its closure, due to Covid-19, has had a detrimental effect in our rural community. During Covid-19, every effort was made to keep in contact with our community and this included setting up a Facebook Page called ‘Rouskey Lifting the Mood through the Arts’. Our local community were invited to post pictures capturing their lives throughout lockdown. It got an amazing response with local people sharing photos of their family lives, nature, animals, landscapes, baking, arts and crafts.
