Welcome to the next instalment of our blog. We are literally going painting mad!! The fumes are making Michelle sing louder as she merrily paints the top bedroom. Everyone is slowly turning white/magnolia and the rooms are generally brighter (mostly because our electricians, Nexus, have added light). Our apprentice, Andy, has become adept at grouting and tiling and the kitchen tiling is almost complete. Spirits are still high and even the window is smiling…

Deano has done amazing with the plastering and this paves the way for more painting and decorating to be done. ‘Ant and Dec’ have been busy levelling out the front garden and shifting the excess soil. They are then rewarded with bacon and sausage butties and a good old cuppa. Michael and Sarah are taking responsibility for the exterior of the property, ensuring the dull, murky grey is replaced with a vibrant cream.

There is lot’s more still to do and we would never underestimate the contribution from our learners and volunteers. At times it’s been hard to visualise the end result but we have been able to maintain a positive working environment, thanks to the dedication of the team. We are looking forward to inspiring and motivating our next group of learners who will be starting with us in a couple of weeks time. Please get in touch if you would like more information about the work and training we offer.
