Start of Community Centre Refurbishment

[Click on the first picture to scroll through]
The refurbishment of part of the Community Centre is underway. New ‘Heritage Grey’ PVC windows which retain the look of the Victorian building, have been installed along the front facade.
Inside it is all systems go! The kitchen has been ripped out ready to be subdivided into a disabled friendly toilet, smaller unisex toilet  and small kitchen. The old door way from the kitchen into the hall has been reopened.
The majority of activities within the building have been suspended for the time being but the library will remain open at its usual times throughout and some smaller groups are meeting in the smaller community room.

Please bear with us during this upheaval.
