Opening of new extension to Spires Community Centre

Monday, January 17, 2011

Local MP Meg Munn was delighted to perform the opening of the new extension to the Spires Community Centre in Arbourthorne. The new extension’s main purpose is to enable the teaching of life skills to young people from the local community. It provides space for a community cafe, a large room for group work and access to computers and desks so young people can complete their homework in a safe and supportive environment.

 

After cutting the ribbon to open the extension Meg presented certificates to volunteers to acknowledge the number of hours they had worked at the centre. Volunteers of all ages were recognised for their contribution over the last two years, some were new to the Spires Centre while one young person had completed over 1000 hours of volunteering. Young people are encouraged to take on responsibility and to become registered volunteers and gain recognised qualifications.

 

The Centre, on East Bank Road, currently provides a range of community activities from luncheon clubs to youth services. It is run by the Miracle Trust and has received funding from a wide range of sources and has a contract with Sheffield Futures for youth work in the area.

 

Meg said:

 

”It was a real evening of celebration. I pay tribute to everyone who has made the Spires Community Centre a thriving local resource.

 

I am sure that the new extension will provide a valuable resource and help to improve the life chances of young people in the area. I’m looking forward to using the cafe when I am out and about in the area.”
