Apfel Lane Community Centre undergoes a makeover

04 May 2016

FCHO carried out a makeover day at Apfel Lane Community Centre on Friday April 29th.

The Stronger Communities and Neighbourhood Teams undertook the work at the underused centre as part of a relaunch initiative.

As the Community Centre underwent its makeover, 14 local residents were surveyed by Tahra Amir about the neighbourhood and how the community would like to see the centre being used.

Totalling a value of £400; paints, rollers, dustsheets and brushes were donated by PPG Architectural Coatings to help our colleagues transform the Community Centre into an attractive space in the heart of Chadderton. Stuart Leigh, PPG Specification Manager, came to support the event in the morning and helped get things in order!

Here are some great photos showing the transformation of the Community Centre; from a derelict underused building into an attractive centre at the heart of our customer's community.
