COMMUNITY CENTRE RECEIVES A CHARITABLE BOOST FROM LOCAL CONTRACTORS
National construction specialists Speller Metcalfe, along with other local businesses, have donated their time and materials for free to improve the garden space for its users.
Originally used as a nursery playground, improvements to the site include taking up the existing flooring and replacing it with new paving slabs to provide a fixed, solid base for the courtyard, as well as planting and decoration to create a quiet haven for users.
Debbie Roberts, Managing Director at EPIC, said: “All the staff and volunteers at EPIC are really appreciative of Speller Metcalfe coming in to transform quite a neglected area into a peaceful sanctuary.
“It’s going to be a real haven for our service users and provides a space where we can start some of our early growing of herbs and salads before transferring the established plants to our allotment.”
“As part of our commitment to the local area and the Considerate Constructors Scheme, we wanted to work with the Trunk Community Centre as a way of giving back to the local community who may be affected by the school works,” said Steve Speller, Joint Managing Director of Speller Metcalfe.
“The project has been a fantastic success and we look forward to the Trunk clients being able to enjoy the new facilities.”
