Community Centre Refurbishments

Community Centre staff receives plaudits for its work during COVID

https://www.wirralglobe.co.uk/news/19525386.praise-new-brighton-community-centre-staff/

The centre has received praise from local resident's in the media for the work it has carried out over the last year. A write up in the Wirral Globe (See link above) has highlighted how the delivery of regular meals and a support package 4 days a week has helped residents well being and improved their quality of life during the worst of the pandemic when a lot of our elderly residents were isolating and could not get out. Our work was particularly benefical for those residents who lived on their own, our meals, doorstep chats and telephone support really helped them get through this challenging and unprecedented period.

Residents in for a warm welcome at revamped community centre

New Brighton Community Centre Chair Tony Jones is appealing for local residents to back the Community Centre. He said, "The Community centre is an established venue that has been used by the local community since 1981, generations of residents and families have used the centre over the years for recreation, support and advice. It's always available for use by the general public for meeting, socialising, exercising and learning. It is a charity, run by our voluntary committee of trustees, made up of local residents, who give up their time freely to help the centre continue its support to the local community".

Tony Jones continued by stating that; "if you are organising a meeting of some kind, or an event, use the community centre and pay for it. That way you're helping to keep it going. You could also arrange a fundraiser to bring funds directly into the coffers of the community centre".

A makeover has taken place in the main activity room, which includes murals and landscapes of New Brighton & Liverpool landmarks, painted by well known local artist Fred Biddulph, with the paint sponsored by AJ Howell DIY of Rake Lane, Wallasey. A new website has also been set up detailing all that's best about the centre, including an archive section stretching back to 1981, maybe you recognise yourself?
