As part of the first phase of refurbishment of Temple Park Centre, the Manor Church and Community Project were successful in their funding bid in 2017 of £40,000 from Veolia Environmental Trust, with additional resources coming from the Methodist Church. These grants have enabled us to replace the heating system, upgrade the lighting and replace the single glazed, metal framed windows with UPVC double glazed window units.
We also have been able to decorate the whole building.
This has created a warm, welcoming and attractive building which our users are very much enjoying.
We plan to continue the redevelopment and refurbishment of Temple Park Centre with future grant applications to:
- improve accessibility for disabled users to the building
- develop a new entrance with reception area
- renovate and improve the toilets
- provide a cafe for users
- develop a soft play centre for children
