Half term week at the centre has been exceptionally busy whilst the Play school children were on holiday.
First thing Monday morning the decorators moved in, together with the electricians.
Just five days later the decorators (3 of them) had painted the two halls, the meeting room, the storeroom, foyer and the kitchen at the centre, and the electricians changed all the lighting to LED’s, fitted (much needed) new lighting to the exterior of the building, repaired and replaced in other areas that needed attention. And whilst all this was going on Tom Orme popped in and replaced the faulty thermostats.
The curtains have been taken down and are at the dry cleaners, and today, the window cleaners arrived and cleaned all the windows and doors inside. Two weeks ago they cleaned the exterior of the building including the fascia, sills and guttering.
All the hedges have been trimmed and the grass cut. The centre (inside and out) looks so much smarter. We are getting it all spruced up before we celebrate the centre’s 50th anniversary next year.
The trustees would like to give a huge thank you to Johnson Wellborn Decorating and to Dave and his team from Glenfield Electrical for doing such a fabulous job for us in just 5 days,
We wouldn’t hesitate to give both firms and their workforce a 5* rating for being able to complete this work within a very tight schedule, for their thoughtfulness, helpfulness and communication skills, which all made for an excellent working relationship. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them and they all worked well together.

This is just the start of major work to be completed at the centre – but we really do need some help. We only have a small team of trustees who look after the two halls for the village. If you have a few hours a month to spare then please get in touch or come to our next meeting (7pm Thursday 17th November at Thornton Community Centre).
