Teignmouth community centre given a makeover

A local community centre in Teignmouth has been given a makeover with a fresh lick of paint with help from the Ian Williams team. 

The Kingsway Meadow Centre was a little jaded, so when manager Sarah Holmes approached the local team, they were eager to help and plans were quickly put in place to carry out the work.

Operatives Margaret Given, Nigel Heard and apprentice Oliver Drew were enlisted to help with the transformation. 

Oliver said: “Volunteering at the community centre has given me a different type of experience from my usual day to day work. I have really enjoyed helping to put a smile on peoples’ faces.”

The community centre is an important community asset and the refresh has given the users a huge boost. For example, every Tuesday, it’s used by a seated exercise group and instructor Ms Wright added: “It’s good to have a fresh-feeling hall which looks and smells great. Thankyou.”

The team have received all round thanks and praise for the work carried out from the local ward councillor David Cox and the chairman of the Kingsway Residents’ Association Ian Parkes. Sarah also passed on her personal thanks to the team stating the centre had been transformed.
