Event description

Description

Ystrad Old Age Pensioners Association is based in a prefabricated building just off one of the main roads running through the Rhondda. The building was initially purchased back in the early 1920’s and was originally used as a church. The building is now used for OAP weekly meetings and social activities. To help generate income the hall is also hired out for functions.

The Association has tried to update the building as best they can with the little income they generate in rental and grant funding from various charities.

The association is striving to make the building as appealing as possible not just for their own members but to improve the rental potential of the hall as much as possible.

Internal Tasks

The hall would benefit from redecoration. Although some parts were only painted two years ago, the wrong paint was used on the wooden panelling which has now started to bubble in the areas above the convection heaters

Sections of the wall are suffering from damp. Although professional expertise would be required to stop the ingress of water. Volunteers could help mask the problem by painting the affected areas with a more durable moisture resistant paint.

If volunteers have the skills needed the hall would like one new laminate floor covering to replace the 3 different ones currently in place between the entrance, kitchen and toilets.

External Tasks

The building would benefit from a new coat of exterior paint to ensure longevity.

Volunteers could also help by clearing out the guttering and clearing back vegetation to maintain access around the building.

Additional Information

  • The Association has No budget for materials

  • Volunteers will require a budget or willingness to undertake some fundraising for materials to complete all the tasks.

  • Additional tasks could include, repairing a small section of guttering which is suspected of leaking, cleaning the carpet in the main hall and painting the stage area, replace/repair dislodged ceiling tiles, general tidying of surrounding grounds.

  • There would be community engagement as the OAP members will attend on the day to provide conversation and refreshments for volunteers.
