Welcome to Beth Prince newly appointed Trustee at Carnegie Community Trust CIO.
This month, Beth Prince joins the Board of Trustees bringing her knowledge and experience as a solicitor and commitment to building strong resources in the community. We welcome Beth and look forward to working together.
Beth has already got to grips with the Trussell Trust Foodbank box in the foyer at Carnegie – which is now picked up regularly. We’d like to encourage all visitors to Carnegie to bring non-perishable food, washing and sanitary products for the Foodbank. See list
At the end of October we also said good bye to Helen Deane and Sophia Bellinfantie who worked with us for 6 months recruiting volunteers, developing and delivering volunteer training, networking, producing and delivering promotion materials. We continue to use the Heritage Lottery funding for promotion, equipment and planning.
The Enterprise Centre is ready to go in the upper floor room and we will shortly be inviting applications from local people to take the attractive desk spaces on licences (see flyer here). If you would like to chat about this, please get in touch through firstname.lastname@example.org
The garden group, a great group including garden experts, has now completed a review of all the shrubs, plants and trees and has made initial proposals to retain the original shape of the garden, clear weeds and many self-seeded plants and trees, prune back, and free up lovely shrubs that are struggling to get light. We are getting some spring bulbs in too!
Plans for the cafe are coming along slowly with our partners, who will co-develop the cafe with us. This development depends on Lambeth moving large amounts of books etc from the front room but we are assured that this will happen!
Rates for Room Hire
We have reviewed our rates for room hire and will be publishing the new rates shortly. All three large, medium and small rooms are available for hire by the hour, half or whole day and are great for meetings, classes, parties, conferences and many other activities.
