Ready, Steady, Cook at Standbridge Lane Community Centre
9 September 2015
Standbridge Lane Community Centre now has new accessible worktops and safe areas installed in their kitchen courtesy of WDH.
The improvements mean that wheelchair bound people and adults with learning difficulties can now learn to cook in a safe environment.
This work is part of a bigger project that aims to turn the old school kitchen at the community centre into a community café that will benefit community centre users as well as residents from Kettlethorpe and the surrounding area.
The new worktops were fitted by WDH joiner Malcolm Whaley and tradesman Lee Geldard. Lee said, “It was great to be able to help out in this way – the new area looks fantastic.”
Councillor Monica Graham says, “I would like to thank WDH for their support and quality workmanship in this project as well as their support on other major repairs and improvements which were part of the renovation of the whole of Standbridge Lane Community Centre. Lee and Malcolm have helped make this kitchen safe and accessible for wheelchair users and adults with learning difficulties to enable them to take part in cooking activities we plan to offer.”
