At their Committee meeting on Tuesday evening (Oct 3rd) the Community Centre Committee agreed to start development work on Phase One of their Improvement Plan. This consists of work to the Main Hall that is intended to improve conditions for all users. The work to be undertaken is:
New suspended ceiling
New lighting to create a wide variety of effects for different events.
Power operated black-out blinds on the mansard windows to remove the sound -deadening curtains
Improvements to the high-level walkway to improve safety.
Alan Wilkinson, Chairman of the Committee said “We have ambitious plans for the Centre but need to split the work into manageable sections. This first phase is intended to bring benefits to most Centre users. The work should cost about £80,000 so we must now produce a properly costed and detailed plan to put before potential grant – awarding bodies”
The George Heath Foundation Trustees have agreed to support the Community Centre in their work and have donated £500 for the Community Centre management team to use towards the scheme.
