Well that might be overstating it a wee bit. We have however taken a little step forward. Our broadband line was installed last week and today I’ve finally got round to testing it. And it works just lovely! The idea behind this is to make the community centre even, more versatile and useful for the adult education classes that come to use our space. Secondly, having broadband makes the centre more useful for setting up training courses for local community businesses. Looking ahead, we are thinking about adding a projector and interactive whiteboard so that this little one room wonder can be used very flexibly.
If we’ve any sparky skills in the community, I could do with a hand to get the router wired into a better spot than jammed in the back of a radiator between the phone point and a power socket, which wouldn’t present the most professional and organised image to any potential users 😉
We have also set a new phone number, so that will be getting set up on all our listings rather than using one of the volunteers number as we have been doing for the last year or so. It’s good to see that use of the centre has crept up slowly with a whole variety of dance, craft and educational courses running.
At half term in February we also managed to have the outside repainted a more “Stanwix” shade of colour. The theory was that it would match the the new build colours of the Playgroup building. What do you think?
As always we are looking for fresh young blood to come and help run this little place. If you think you could offer a little time to help… and yes it does involve committee meetings 🙁 then we’d love to hear from you. Just give Paul Nedved a shout on 07847 502 163.
