Work on the Centre has stopped for the time being until we can generate further funds.

Presently the rooms that are partially completed are being used for meetings and the beginnings of a joinery workshop.

The hope this year is complete the basic structure of the ground floor so that even without windows or electricity it can begin to realise its purpose and potential – step by step. Our target is to raise £100,000.
