A warm welcome to the Community Centre news page. We are hoping the Centre will continue to be busy and well used during this year. There is currently a vacant weekly slot in the Kings Hall on Friday mornings, which we would like to fill. There are also other slots available in the smaller Troughton and Storeton rooms. All the rooms are well equipped and the Centre is fully accessible.
The Centre gained its ‘five star’ hygiene rating last year following an unannounced visit from an environmental health officer from Wirral Council. This is great news and means that we maintain excellent standards. Thanks to everyone who contributes to keeping the Centre clean and tidy and long may it continue!
We are always getting requests to run children’s birthday parties at the weekend, particularly on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon for around three hours. This needs someone to be at the Centre to open up, then check that the building has been properly cleaned and secured when everyone has left. You don’t need to be present for the whole event. Sarah and Julie currently share this role between them, but demand always outstrips supply and this could be a useful source of extra revenue for the Centre. It is a shame that the Centre is not used more regularly at the weekends, apart from Sunday’s Church related activities. However, more people are needed to help out. There is a £25 fee for the role. If you are interested, please talk to Sarah or Julie.
The grounds behind the Centre will continue to be developed this year with an environmental theme to fit in with our aim to gain ‘gold’ status with
Eco-Church. Plans are afoot to dig a wild life pond and plant wild flower seeds. We will need volunteers for this so please contact the Parish Office if you are interested in joining in with this important work.
The Centre foyer is to be given a mini make-over. The front of the building will be re-painted as it is looking a bit sad. Leaflet holders will be wall mounted in the foyer to tidy them up. If you have any ideas about how it can be made more appealing, please get in touch.
Do you need a venue for your group to meet? Do you have any ideas for a class or would like to run one? Feel free to contact the Centre Manager by telephone (0151 608 4429), email firstname.lastname@example.org
or in person at the Parish Office on Tuesday mornings.
