Parish hall gets a makeover with help from volunteers

A team of volunteers from our Customer Services team has helped with a makeover of the Parish Hall in Woodborough.

Members of the trade team including a carpenter, electrician, decorator, kitchen fitter and plumber volunteered their time and spent a week modernising the hall. They refreshed the paint in the main hall and installed new units and counter tops in the kitchen. The Parish Hall will now be reopened, with local groups and classes able to benefit from the new facilities. 

Plans to modernise the Parish Hall first began when its Committee reached out to the social housing provider, asking if they could spare any old worktops or units. But Aster went one step further and installed a range of brand-new equipment at the hall for free. 

Peter Maclaine from the Parish Hall Committee said: “We are all so pleased at the result, and it is far better than we had hoped for. This has absolutely reinvigorated the room and we are all so grateful.”

Josh Dear, Head of Housing for Wiltshire at Aster, said: “It has been a hugely rewarding experience for the team, and we hope that the community enjoy spending time there. The team really enjoyed being involved with the project and feel that they have, in a small way, assisted their local community.”
