One of our Rotarians, Pauline, is also involved in the Towcester Youth Coffee House which had to close due to the building requiring updating and extending to provide suitable facilities for the Youth of Towcester . Fortunately they secured funding to significantly extend and update their building which has now doubled in size, with an upstairs activity space added to the downstairs coffee lounge area.
Many hands had obviously been in the building before we arrived as the building has had structural changes, new window, new doors and new kitchen facilities. Our job was to provide the walls with a fresh lick of paint. We grabbed our rollers and we were hard at it for hours, well there may have been some tea and coffee breaks, however we managed to get a couple of coats of brilliant white paint to all of the walls and ceiling in the upstairs room.
There is still much more to do before it is ready for the young people of Towcester to start enjoying their new space this winter. TYCH are holding a Community Open Day on Saturday 13th October (10:00am-4:00pm) at the Coffee House on Branson’s Lane. You can go along and take a look and also see how you can volunteer to help with this project.
