stanwix community centre in north carlisle with new paint look

Community Centre for the 21st Century?

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?

About Ray Cassidy

Having lived in Stanwix for several years and having found myself with time on my hands, I decided to lend a hand to the SCA way back in 2008. The first project was the website and a stint as a committee bod. However techie stuff meant we had to lay Stanwix info to rest. I just keep it as a testing platform now. Once the refurbishment of the community centre was complete, we realised that we need ed to make sure we could market the centre reasonably effectively. To that end I offered to use the resources of Consulting Cumbria Ltd to do a little community service. Without going over the top, we have managed to keep the website fairly prominent and integrated a simple online payment and booking system to help us bring in users .
