Cash on ta­ble for hall

Southport Visiter - - Visiter Life -

TRUSTEES of Hes­keth Bank Com­mu­nity Cen­tre are cel­e­brat­ing an Awards for All grant from the Big Lot­tery Fund.

The grant, just un­der £10,000, helps the aim of be­com­ing a com­mu­nity hub.

Steve Kirby, who chairs the vol­un­teer group of six, said: “This is a great achieve­ment and gives a real boost to our plans.”

The first thing they have bought is much needed ta­bles.

Sue El­lis said: “We have greatly in­creased the num­ber of groups us­ing the cen­tre and as a re­sult have been strug­gling with not enough ta­bles.

“These new ta­bles will mean that we don’t have to keep mov­ing fur­ni­ture be­tween halls on the site and im­pro­vis­ing with past­ing ta­bles.”

The next thing on their list is fit­ting new van­ity units in the ladies toi­lets.

The units were do­nated last year by Kevin Poin­ton and the money will pay for in­stal­la­tion.

Steve said: “Re­ceiv­ing this award is a mark of qual­ity of the work we are do­ing in the com­mu­nity.”
