A CHURCH hall is getting a revamp – much to the delight of local youngsters.
Independent training provider CCL is promoting National Apprenticeship Week by refurbishing the Ordsall Hallows Parish Hall.
It is used extensively by the local community and many groups meet there including Scouts, Beavers, Rainbows, Brownies as well as mother and toddler groups and dancing and keep fits groups.
Edward Knox, chairman of 1st Ordsall Scout Group, heard an appeal on a local radio station asking for voluntary and community groups needing repairs and maintenance to contact CCL.
He said: “It really needs doing. There is a storage room that is really cold and just horrible and they are going to refurbish that.”
Tutors and young adults on a Construction Apprenticeship with CCL will, as part of the National Apprenticeship Week, assist with the repair, maintenance and decorating of the rooms.
John Green Operations Director from CCL said: “The company takes its social corporate responsibility serious and felt it important that it contributes to the social fabric of our communities, especially the many voluntary and community organisations that exist, providing essential activities and services to all age groups.”
“The work will also form an important part of the apprentices’ training programme and social responsibility.”
CCL is appealing to local building merchants to donate materials such as paint, plaster board, insulating materials and timber to this project and any trades persons wanting to get involved are welcome.
