Visitors to the Resource Centre in the Community Centre over the past few months may have noticed some new additions. As well as a fantastic kitchen makeover, giving us some much needed storage space, the New Hall has filled up with additional tables and chairs, and the new presses are heaving with useful kitchen equipment.
This is all thanks to the Trustees of the Alan O’Dowd Fund who have turned a family tragedy into a tribute to community spirit by providing the equipment needed to hold events that bring us together, whether in mourning or in celebration.
We look forward to using the tables, the chairs, the utensils, and the lovely new kitchen for many years to come, imbuing them as we do so with the memory of a life too soon ended.
