Fri 12 May 2017, 09:00 – 17:00 BST
This Community Centre in Newport ensures that the community has a welcoming and active community facility. The Centre houses childcare services and also provides a range of courses and training opportunities. Also available at the Centre are job clubs, senior citizens bingo, play club, choir, youth clubs, over 50’s lunch clubs, sea cubs and also hosts Citizen Advice Drop in sessions.
The Centre would like employee volunteer support to improve the appearance of their hall. The room is used for the majority of activities offered at the Gaer Centre, it was recently painted but has since become marked and scuffed from day to day use. Ideally volunteers with the skills and budget would be welcomed to clad the lower half of the walls with a protective cladding. If this is not possible volunteers could help by touching up marked sections or simply wiping clean with sugar soap. The flooring in the hall consists of a hard-wearing laminate, there is a section around a radiator which has been damaged and required cutting out and a new piece patching in, while its appreciated that not all volunteers will be able to undertake this it is a priority of the centre and any funds raised by volunteers could be used to get the laminate professionally repaired.
There are also tasks around the outside of the centre which volunteers could help with such as washing or jet washing the walls to remove the green algae. The entrance to the centre would benefit from a makeover to make the centre a little more enticing.
The centre does not have a budget for materials
