The West Hill Community Centre, Bembrook Road, Hastings is appealing for local residents to spare some time to help out with cleaning, organising and fundraising.
West Hill Community Centre Trustee, Mary Phillips says the centre is completely run by volunteers with no paid staff and they need more help. “At the moment we are a very small team and would love more people to join us,” she said. “Anyone who would like to find out more about how to be involved is invited to our annual Spring Clean Day on Saturday June 18 from 1.30pm. It’s a great opportunity to meet other people from the local community and help keep the centre looking its best.
“When we have finished cleaning we will be going to The Plough pub on Priory Road for a drink.”
The Spring Clean comes on the back of Volunteers Week (June 1-12) which Mary says is an annual celebration of the “fantastic contribution millions of volunteer make across the UK”, she added: “Tressell Ward, where the West Hill Community Centre is situated, is one of the poorest in England and provides the local community with the opportunity to attend classes that are affordable, including Art, Meditation, Dance and Weight Loss as well as a venue for parties and meetings so please support us.”
