June at the LiLi Centre

As the lockdown in Switzerland eases the events calendar at the LiLi Centre is filling up fast and June is shaping up to be a delicious month! We are excited to be launching a number of new eat-in or take-away food options as well as the return of our weekly Wednesday summer BBQ! Keep reading to find out more…

June also marks the fourth anniversary of the LiLi Centre but given the current circumstances we are unable to hold a big celebration… Instead we hope that you can show your appreciation for the Centre by attending one of our many events this month! We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our Members and volunteers for your continued support. 

Please note that social distancing regulations are still in place and  that all visitors will be required to disinfect / wash their hands regularly. Masks are available for purchase on the door. Please do not visit the Centre if you have any Covid-19 symptoms.

Best wishes,

Your Lili Centre Team
